Why We Do What We Do

Our Farm. August.

With the lazy days of late summer upon us, we finally have a chance to step back and breathe. 2015 has been a year for the record books around these parts, and in the midst of all the hype from Fenway Farms and our Community Investment Campaign, we’ve found it necessary to take some time to think about the big picture.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be sitting down with the key members of our company’s leadership, who will offer their take on GCG, the urban agriculture movement, and what they find most important and rewarding about their job. We hope you appreciate the chance to get to know the people behind your plants, and to understand the passion that drives our company.

First up: an interview with Erik Sol, our Director of Operations!
