Connecting Our Lives with Our Landscape

Join us July 15th, to hear from Sunil Patel of Patchwork Urban Farms. Learn how Patchwork is creating a movement to reconnect our lives with our landscapes, and find out how you can plug in. Patchwork is regenerating our urban landscapes and making the groundwork for a vibrant food and farming economy. The time for concerted action is now!

Sunil Patel farmer/founder of Patchwork Urban Farms
A farmer, permaculturalist, and a food and farming thought-leader, he’s studied natural farming methods and worked for farmers in California, West Virginia, New Jersey, and Oregon. Along the way, he’s collected many skills from growing 4-season biodynamic vegetables, to managing a grass-fed dairy herd, making artisanal raw milk cheese, baking for production in a commercial wood-fired oven, natural building, and helping maintain permaculture sites. Hailing from Pittsburgh, PA, he managed a large CSA in central PA for the about 4 years. In that time, he expanded a quarter acre plot to a 12 acre working farm. In January 2013, relocating to Asheville and transitioning from being Site Manager and Teaching Urban Farming at the Ashevillage Institute, he launched Patchwork Urban Farms in early 2014.
