We know you've had a secret dream to get up from your cubicle, drive to your farm and turn the keys on to your John Deere. Here's your chance to be one step closer. Greg Peterson is leading a discussion on starting your own urban farm at Changing Hands in Tempe tonight at 7. Peterson will walk you through the process of getting started and give you "the top three things you need to know to successfully grown your fall garden."
Here's Greg at his Urban Farm:
It's not too hot to get started. Seeds love the heat and Peterson suggests sunrise as your time of attack. Peterson has been gardening since 1975, founded The Urban Farm, co-founded the Valley Permaculture Guild and can be seen in local magazines and broadcasts sharing his vast knowledge of green living here in the Valley. Changing Hands is located at 6428 S McClintock Dr. in Tempe. For more information: http://www.urbanfarm.org/
