    Come celebrate the end of Earth Day tonight by learning how to grow organic, environmentally conscious gardens in containers.

    Eric Olsen is a consummate sales professional with over 7 years of experience in the consumer and commercial gardening industries. He is knowledgeable in many aspects of the industry, such as soil and plant science, garden space design, among others. His passions are people and plants. When he’s not in the field visiting stores or doing garden club presentations, he’s with his family or in the garden.

    Eric is passionate about organic gardening, as well as environmentally conscious growing methods. He said, “One of the things that attracted me to joining High Caliper Growing/ Smart Pots, is their environmentally friendly fabric pots do not leech harmful toxins like BPA into our water system. That, and they set the standard by inventing and perfecting the fabric pot made with quality in the USA.”

    This presentation will focus on Container and Raised Bed Gardening and covers a slight history of food production, various container materials, pros and cons for each.  Finally we will learn about Smart Pots, what they are and why they are the best option for growing plants in containers.

    Connor Leone is the Sustainable Agriculture Program Manager from ECOLIFE Conservation.  

    We will learn about the science of aquaponics and how ECOLIFE is utilizing this sustainable growing method to reduce resource consumption and increase food security. We will cover the most common types of aquaponic system designs and their defining features, and take an inside look at ECOLIFE's Aquaponics Innovation Center - a commercial demonstration system growing ~3,000lbs of produce annually. This is a great opportunity for farmers, gardeners, educators, and all of those interested in sustainability to learn more about our programs and the many ways we work to protect wildlife, natural resources, and the people who depend on them." 

    Connor moved to San Diego from Morgantown, West Virginia to earn his bachelor’s degree in Environmental Studies at CSU San Marcos. He is passionate about bringing awareness to environmental challenges through education, and he hopes to inspire synergistic relationships between humankind and the natural world.
