Volunteer Background
I'm a young man in my early 20's, which may seem relatively young but I can assure you that I have a fair bit of experience with the cultivation of many types of plants.

I've always had a fascination with plants, especially the edible and medicinal, and nature in general.
Favorite Crops & Least Favorite Crops
I don't like growing corn or soybeans. Well, it's not really that I don't like to grow them, it's just that I'm surrounded by genetically modified fields, and don't want to risk stray pollen bringing on a dispute with Monsanto or something ridiculous. That would be my luck, after all.

Other than that, there isn't much that I don't love to grow. Except poison ivy, keep that shit!
