(Sub)Urban Micro Farms
Location: Winnetka Farms, Winnetka, California
Featuring: Craig Rugglss and Gary Jackemuk
Craig Ruggless and Gary Jackemuk started this farm in their backyard in Winnetka, California to grow what they couldn’t find in their local supermarket. Gary says, “In the last twenty years, we’ve lost hundreds of varieties of vegetables from our tables, because commercial growers simply stopped growing them.”
Craig adds, “The U.S. has basically one zucchini and one yellow crook neck squash that is grown nationally and they’re both horrible. People of this generation don’t know they’re missing.
