Originally from the fertile land surrounding Decorah, Iowa, agriculture has been a passion of Collin's for many years. He has been involved in small-scale diversified agriculture as a farmer, builder, educator, researcher, volunteer and consultant. He has worked on farms around the world, most recently serving as part of the management team of a four-season organic vegetable farm in northeast Iowa. In addition to his growing experience, he has worked with a high-tunnel manufacturing company that offers season extension technologies and systems, as well as services that support four-season growing. His experiences have provided him with a global perspective and a local approach when it comes to sustainable food production.
