In addition to his formal education and apprenticeship he has volunteered extensively with two urban farms in the Bay Area: Little City Gardens in San Francisco and City Slicker Farms in West Oakland. Through these volunteer activities he enhanced his skills in plant knowledge and cultivation and further developed his skills in growing, harvesting and distributing produce in the SF metropolis, a passion of his.
Debbie is a Senior Landscaper and has been working with Casey and Patrick on the Landscape Maintenance Team for over a year.
She moved to the Bay Area in 2011 from Indiana where she was an Advanced Master Gardener. Due to her love of plants and nature, she started volunteering at Hayes Valley Farm, a permaculture project in San Francisco, which inspired her to take a course in Permaculture Design at the Urban Permaculture Institute of San Francisco. This in turn led her to volunteer with several other projects in SF including Friends of the Urban Forest, Alemany Farm, and the Bee Farm where she continued to learn and refine her skills. Although she is now working full time and has less flexibility in her schedule she still finds time to volunteer in the urban agriculture community in SF.
