060: Organic Farming with Verd Nolan

12 minutes

Verd has been growing food for as long as he can remember, beginning in his family’s backyard garden in Oak Park, Illinois. At age sixteen, he left home to live and work on a communal farm in Austin, Texas, where he stayed for ten years and met his future wife, Jeanne.
In 2005, Verd and Jeanne started The Organic Gardener Ltd., a company that creates beautiful and productive organic edible gardens throughout the Midwest. Today, Verd lives on a little farm called Middlefork with Jeanne and family. On this episode, Nate traveled to Middlefork to learn all about organic farming and how kids can grow their own food.
