Hi, I’m Scott! I’ve been gardening since 2009, when I first signed up for a 150 square foot community garden plot. In the last 4 years, I’ve gone from gardening novice (and stressing out about whether my seeds would germinate!) to growing more produce than I can eat. Along the way, I’ve developed my own philosophy on local food, small-scale agriculture, and sustainable growing methods. This blog is written to share my adventures in vegetable-gardening, seed-saving, plant-breeding, and woodchuck-chasing, and hopefully provide suggestions to others who are interested in sustainable gardening in a small space. I’ve also served as the President of the Community Garden at Penn State since 2012, so I am also hoping to share some of my experiences in how to start and operate a successful community garden. When I’m not tinkering in the garden, or busy with my work as a Ph.D. student, I’m probably cooking dinner with some of my fresh produce, or exploring the mountains of Central PA. Enjoy!
