Formerly employed in landscaping and plant nursery work, Dave was an apprentice at Scratch Farm in 2016 before working at City Farm. The son of a biologist who often kept a garden, he has been astounded by all he’s been able to learn about small-scale, bio-intensive farming, from transplanting and cover cropping to solarizing and low-till cultivation. The experience has motivated him to help change the imbalances in the food system he saw growing up in both urban and suburban areas, possibly by running his own farming operation one day. When not at City Farm, you can catch Dave running, playing basketball, practicing a martial art or delving into a conspiracy theory. If you’re at the Farm come chat with him about the normal or the weird.
