Lessons I’ve Learned from My Vegetable Garden
with Ian Wilson, Portland Edible Gardens
Join Ian Wilson of Portland Edible Gardens as he shares his experiences with backyard vegetable gardening, from how he first became interested in vegetable gardening to some of his favorite vegetables to grow. Along the way, Ian will share some of his best tips and “how to’s” as well as some of the “not to’s” he’s learned.
Born and raised in Portland, Ian worked on and managed organic farms in Vermont, Argentina, Hawaii, and California before coming home to roost. He received an Advanced Certificate in Ecological Horticulture at UC Santa Cruz in 2010 before managing 18 acres of organic vegetables at 47th Avenue Farm, one of Portland’s oldest CSA farms, growing food for over 200 Portland area families. He started Portland Edible Gardens in 2013, and has never looked back.
