I grew up as a third generation avid gardener. Being a farmer was a natural extension for pursuing my love of the land and an appreciation of what it can produce. I am pleased to be able to volunteer and be a part of this valuable asset of North Iowa. After leaving our gardens on the farm and 40 years of accumulation and labor of love, I and my wife Patty wanted to be a part of Central Gardens of North Iowa. I am looking forward to serving on the board and making the gardens a beautiful place for all of North Iowa.
