My Dad was a farmer, and as a boy I sometimes helped him in our family garden. I went on to teach high school science and biology for over thirty years. This included advanced placement environmental science and I wrote the curriculum for horticulture at Quincy High School in Quincy Massachusetts. As a horticulture teacher in the City of Quincy, I worked with students developing projects related to urban gardening. I have enjoyed practicing many of the same principles at home. My attention has been drawn to sustainability and the issues of keeping us all healthy.
When a colleague of mine suggested that I read Square Foot Gardening, I got the book and read it and could not put it down. We can all complain about environmental toxins and the poor quality of our food. However you and I can make a difference; “1 Square Foot at a Time”. We can come together and practice good science and good living and it is easier than you may think.
