I own a third acre in Scottsdale..3rdAcreF­arm. I am developing the property to be both aesthetically beautiful and produce herbs, fruits/berries, and vegetables. I am always interested in sharing what works and what didn't and learning from others.

How many years have you been gardening in Arizona?


What's your favorite plant to grow?


What do you consider yourself an expert in?

Trial and error, and patience.

    Hi Chris, We have met at various meetups. In the past you mentioned you were an herbalist. Do you by any chance prepare essential oils? It has been highly recommended to me to treat my sciatica (which is severe) with essential oils and I know what goes into the mixture, but this is a totally new subject for me and I don't know if I want to buy all the different oils and make the mixture. Hope you get this message. Please get back to me to let me know if you can help. Thanks. Christa

    Chris, that is a pretty interesting background! Where is your farm? Your projects make me jealous, being outside, working with soil and animals. I would love for you to share on our discussion page your current project and maybe we can learn something from your experience. I know I certainly want to hear more about your farm.

    Welcome Chris! Your background and urban farm sound awesome! One day with no waste is a good idea! We're sorry you can't make it to our big event! We do have smaller meetups at local, eco-businesses so we hope to see you soon!
