Greg Peterson of the Urban Farm in Phoenix wants every home in the Valley to grow their own produce.
Peterson offers in-person and online classes to make his dream a reality. Self-proclaimed master gardener Cecilia Nedelko is proof Peterson’s methods work. She started taking classes from Peterson nearly 20 years ago. Now, Nedelko has transformed her Mesa backyard into a massive garden filled with mulberries, peaches, potatoes and more. When her backyard started to overflow, she bought the house next door to grow even more. Nedelko retired from her corporate job to garden full-time. You can visit her and purchase her produce at the Gilbert Farmers Market every Wednesday.
