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.
All of our news, features, and editorials are free to our readers. If you would like to see your work published on PowerHouse Growers or have a comment email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
