Groundbreaker

Location:  Gainesville, FL

Day Job:  Health Administration

The Digs:  Backyard, Community Garden, Containers, Front yard

Crops:  Blackberries, Blueberries, Figs, Grapes, Loquats, Oranges, Tangerines

Animals:  - Chickens (4 mature laying hens/2 Black Sex Links, 1 Araucana, and 1 White Brahma/free range; I have fenced off an area for the chickens around my fruit trees; that way they can clean up the fallen fruit and keep the bug population down while keeping out of my smaller produce...) - Bees, Dairy Goat (plan for near future)

Why I'm Getting Dirty:  I am very interested in healthy living and environmental sustainability; I am also very concerned with aesthetics, so my plan is to construct my urban farm in both a visually appealing and efficiently functional manner; Hopefully, I will be able to prove that you can have your aesthetics and eat it too; I will include more photos as the plan progresses...

    I've been offline for quite a while. I've just had too much to keep up with. Thank you for all the kind words over the last couple of years. I will try to be more responsive moving forward and will update my profile as I am able. My family and I started our Urban Farming experience with 2 chickens in 2010 and have developed quite a lot since then. It's been a fun and challenging experience so far, and we are looking forward to many more future developments. I'm looking forward to interacting with my online community again as we are all on this journey together...

    Wow! What a plethora of crops! I don't think I could stay on top of that many. Voted.
