peter pic 2Welcome Peter Nelson; Our New Program Assistant

Peter is the newest member of our Discovery Program team. He has lived in the Monterey Bay area for the last 24 years. He has a history with many conservation and education nonprofits in the area and has had the opportunity to help create and build many school and community gardens around the Central Coast.

Most recently he was working in the Chinatown neighborhood in Salinas working with homeless and marginalized communities teaching job training, computer skills, and organic gardening. He has worked with people and plants in a variety of settings from the wilds of Ft. Ord to the Elementary School Gardens of Salinas, but this is his first time on a production scale farm. He is excited to meet and learn with all the amazing people that will visit Live Earth Farm and Discovery Garden.
