Volunteer Background
I'm an ecosocialist, gardener, and mathematician currently living in the Boston area. I grew up gardening but don't have much systematic training or theoretical knowledge about it.
Favorite Crops & Least Favorite Crops
Most of my experience is with commonly grown annual vegetables and herbs—tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, basil, squash, beans, peas, etc.—as well as various perennial flowers. I'm currently trying to grow a garden consisting mostly of perennial vegetables for the first time.
