Instructors Jamie and Blas are San Francisco natives. Growing up among concrete and row houses only fueled their love of the outdoors. They tend a small homestead with their two daughters, complete with honey bees, chickens, greenhouse, mini orchard and vegetables. Blas has a degree in environmental studies and a certificate in sustainable design from the Urban Permaculture Institute of San Francisco. He is passionate about reuse and envisioning a garden as a closed system. Jamie has a masters in science from SF State University and is a certified UC Cooperative Extension Master Gardener. She loves the science behind gardening and sharing it in ways that are accessible to everyone. They’re often volunteering at community greenspace Sisterhood Gardens, posting #veggieporn on Instagram and running their landscape/educational company Fog City Gardener.
