As the editor of PowerHouse Growers Group (PHG), I strive to ensure that our content is timely, well-researched, and on the cutting edge of urban agriculture and sustainability.
I edit for PHG because I admire its vision, and I love being a part of moving that vision forward in a way that positively impacts individuals and organizations in all areas. In the future, I aim to further the cause of green building practices by developing sustainable homes and buildings that go above and beyond certifications like LEED - structures that not only serve our basic human needs, but provide healthy habitation while maintaining modern design.
