About Me

Greetings!  I’m Brian, and I currently reside in the city of Chicago, USA.

I’ve had a green thumb for many, many years.  My love of nurturing vegetation has evolved over time, beginning with ornamental plants like native grasses, evolving to house plants, edible plants, medicinal plants and now crop plants.

At this stage of my life, the idea of operating a SPIN (Small Plot INtensive) farming operation in an urban environment has a strong appeal.  Growing in the community garden is how I’m getting my experience and training.  I find that engaging in these activities is very satisfying and nourishing (I’ve often told people I could easily spend the night in the garden.)

I’ll chronicle my journey here.  Feel free to follow along.


Enjoy and be well, Everyone.
