PPP 16: Urban Gardening & Family Centered Permaculture with Jeremy Brown

Today, I am introducing you to someone who inspires me in both my permaculture and spiritual journey. Jeremy Brown is the creator of Brown Bear Wilderness Co. and a fellow Milwaukee permaculture educator, urban gardener, foraging/wilderness guide, husband and father of 5.

There are MANY things we could cover in today’s interview, but I am focusing specifically on Jeremy’s knowledge of urban gardening, gardening with a large family, and his dreams for wilderness education.

PPP 14: Crazy over Carrots

It's another plant feature all about carrots! Often my plant features have included plants that are lesser known as edibles, but today the plant feature is a vegetable that the majority of people will recognize and that many commonly partake of.
