Meet Michael Mozdy

Michael is a 30-something father of two, a writer and a cook. He dabbles in gardening and is constantly wowed by people who really know how to grow. In Salt Lake, that turns out to be quite a number of people! Michael has lived in apartments, townhomes and single family homes, and his garden has been everything from windowsill herbs to a large backyard. His favorite: one of the easternmost community garden plots at the Grateful Tomato Garden back in 2002.
Michael’s passion for sustainable agriculture took off when he served as Executive Director for Wasatch Community Gardens in the early 2000s. His favorite aspect of gardening is soil preparation, and he had the privilege of learning strain-free double digging from the master, John Jeavons. Michael loves to eat well, and thinks the best restaurant trend to develop in the past years is the farm-to-table movement. He looks forward to sharing his travels in the world of sustainability, growing, cooking and eating.
