Volunteer Background
My name is Sam Baker, I run an edible landscaping business with a focus on holistic and bio intensive practices. Located in humid-subtropical Englewood, FL (zone 10a near the gulf). I encourage people to grow tree crops and perennial vegetables at home. I'm personally always on the hunt for new species and varieties to offer clients, particularly fruits and staple crops. I have a lot of space to grow, in many different micro climates, with irrigation available.
