Young Farmers: Edgar

For our final episode of Young Farmers, allow us to introduce you to Edgar, a young Angeleno who extended his passion for plants into a job that’s as rewarding as any we’ve ever heard of: converting empty lots into community gardens. Edgar, we learn, is a man who was born to plant; when  his mom was pregnant with him, she craved eating dirt. Yes, dirt. And so Edgar’s fate was sealed. Now, when he’s not building productive gardens for communities around L.A., you can find him in his own garden, growing food for himself and his pets, not to mention ingredients for his plant-based creations, from preserves to cosmetics.
