Greg began his work with Just Food in 2008 when he led the effort to bring chickens to the Walt L. Shamel Community Garden in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. That same year he became a Just Food Trainer for the City Farms Program. Since then, he has given many workshops on chicken care, soil health and cover crops; worked side by side with Owen Taylor to build more than 10 of our City Chicken Project coops; and has co-taught three Training of Trainers courses. Greg comes to Just Food after being a Youth Development Specialist for 13 years, implementing youth programming in Queens, NY. He also helped lead the effort to bring Walt L. Shamel Community Garden back to life in Crown Heights, Brooklyn where he and his family has lived for the past 20 years.
