In this episode of the Journey of My Mother’s Son podcast, I sit down and talk with Greg Peterson.

Greg is the host of the Urban Farm Podcast and the founder of The Urban Farm.

“What if there was a garden and fruit tree in every yard?” This is a question that Greg ponders every day.  For over 32 years he created on of one of Phoenix’s first environmental showcase homes for urban farming.  The 1/4-acre yard featured a primarily edible landscape with over 80 fruit trees, rainwater and greywater harvesting, solar applications, and extensive use of reclaimed and recycled building materials.

In 2003 was created as an online portal for urban farming education then in 2015 Greg created the  The podcast is designed to help fulfill Greg’s passion of spreading the word about growing your own food and sharing new and seasoned gardener’s epic stories.
