Steve rodrigue, founder

Steve graduated from the University of Maine in 2010, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Landscape Horticulture and a concentration in design. While in school he worked for the city of Augusta, Maine, installing and maintaining city-planted gardens and trees. In 2009, he interned at Longfellow's Greenhouses in Manchester, Me. After graduating college he worked for nearly six years as a vegetable research technician for Johnny's Selected Seeds. He was responsible for sourcing vegetable varieties of several crops from companies throughout the world, designing trials, and evaluating results based on performance to ultimately make informed suggestions on which varieties should be added to the annual 200+ page catalog. In his free time, you can find him working around his homestead, finishing off his small (16'x20') off-grid house, and establishing gardens and fruit tree plantings.
