Educational Background
Professional gardener, two years of studies.
Volunteer Background
Edible plant enthusiast from Finland (USDA 5, approx.) who is trial testing, and in future also breeding, mulberries (Morus spp.) , walnuts (juglans spp.), cornellian cherries (Cornus mas) and bush type Prunus, and many more. I am a professional gardener, studied for two years in school, and been studying on my own before and after that. Interested in rural life and ecology, and happy as a kite often :) .

I have some space to use in my current yard, but I can offer fields and fields back in my family estate, where I do my tree growing anyways. The trick is that I can't be there all the time, so I usually grow plants to reasonable size in pots, and then transfer them to the estate, and let them be, weeding them two or three times in a summer when I can go to there. Eventually I will move back, but right now it is this way.
Favorite Crops & Least Favorite Crops
I like to grow tree crops and bush crops, not so much annuals, although landraces are interesting enough for me to try for my own clumping onion!
