Consulting, Etc.

Check the following pages of this website for more details. I've gotten pretty busy recently, but I try to answer as many requests as possible.

For the 2016 season I'm finally getting back to urban agriculture, what I started with 20 years ago. This season I'm working with my friend Matt at Cully Neighborhood Farm and doing a little of my own produciton on the side, just down the street.

From 2009 to 2012 Slow Hand Farm was a very small farm growing unique, locally adapted vegetables with exceptional flavor for individual sized CSA shares. That CSA became on of the starting pieces of Our Table where I set up the initial vegetable production systems.
