Social innovator, novice author, and avid gardener, “Farmer Karl” delights in working with others in the garden. Farmer Karl enjoys the possibility of life, love, and connectedness. His favorite part of farming is helping people connect with nature so that they experience abundance in life. Having gardened all his life, he has experienced the transformative power of the garden. He comes to us from Philadelphia where he started “Grow-Life,” a garden club for youth.  Farmer Karl saw first-hand how children were invigorated by interacting in the garden. He’s excited to be part of the Green Team and support wherever he can.  Karl is also president of Eden Streets, a nonprofit that supports the establishment of urban farms and gardens, creating nurturing communities to cultivate plants and people.
