Justin has a profound appreciation for how culture is so crucial to growing and preparing our food. He learned this firsthand through hearing from subsistence farmers throughout Central America. As Program Director, Justin oversees the day-to-day operations of the PHS Community Gardens Program and helps support and advise the team. He views the work of community gardeners and urban growers as essential to our city’s vibrancy and future, and as a demonstration of climate resiliency. When not at PHS, Justin is with his family in their East Mt. Airy home, enjoying harvests from their garden or trekking around on his bike.
