Jake Mace started his garden in 2011 with a peach tree, fig tree, pomegranate tree, and kumquat tree to save money on his food budget. He was inspired by a class at the Urban Farm and applied what he learned with full enthusiasm and passion – starting with a very serious load of wood chips. He followed up that up with more research, application, and even experimentation with various plants and trees. Today, that ‘garden’ a luscious green food forest. His mission is to live a life that’s compassionate with a a zero- to positive-sum impact on the earth, particularly through his commitment to a vegan lifestyle. He is one-half of the Ask Jake and Greg monthly show that answers gardening and fruit tree questions.
Jake also teaches Martial Arts, Fitness, Tai Chi, Yoga, Gardening, and Golf to people from around The World via his successful YouTube channel and Online Schools at JakeMace.com. Outside of teaching, Jake’s real passion is as an advocate for the environment, animals, and people. Jake has been a Vegan Vegetarian for nearly 16 years and believes in preserving The Earth, it’s resources, and it’s living inhabitants so that future generations can enjoy them as he has! Jake Studied Mandarin Chinese while attending ASU and Duke Universities.
