#142: The Urban Farm with Greg Peterson
Greg Peterson is the founder of The Urban Farm, a food-growing educator, a permaculture enthusiast, writer, and the creator of The Urban Farm podcast. Here, Lisa and Greg discuss how he became involved in the green living and sustainability movements, how his small urban residential plot in Arizona gradually became a sustainable food-producing powerhouse, and his recent move to North Carolina with his partner, Heidi. Shared philosophies emerge, including the importance of consistency and committing to a goal in business and in life, plus the importance of knowing where our food comes from and playing an active role in producing our own food.
