"I believe one of the ways to save the sea is to manage the land organically"
I began growing organic produce at my home farm in Belmont Shore, California, in 1974. Since that time, I have shared my knowledge and success with many other urban farmers. Twenty years later, I founded Long Beach Organic (LBO), to make organic produce available throughout the City by turning vacant lots into organic community gardens. I currently sell county-inspected organic produce from my home garden to the surrounding neighborhood. The garden also serves as the major provision source for my expeditions.
Other than my passion for, and dedication to, the sea, turning vacant lots into community gardens is my dream
April 5, 2019. Sixth Annual Long Beach County Fair. My Purple Cabbage was the winning entry and crowd favorite…lots of people wanted pictures with it, but no ribbon. My delicious Chocolate Persimmons won a second place ribbon.
March 23, 2018. At the Little Parrot Farm in Rowland Heights mulch is the key to organic farming. The Bliss and Wisdom Buddhist Temple invited me to inspect and advise as well as learn about their farming practices.
April 30, 2018. At home from the Shanghai Symposium in time to harvest Coriander Seed and plant Cilantro.
It's wonderful to be back with my hands in the soil and to enjoy making things grow and to share the fruits of the soil with the neighborhood and friends.
2017. Bounties from the soil all year round. Christmas baskets for friends and neighbors.
