Enoch Graham Bio
Gardening in southern Oregon, Enoch Graham has developed a love for growing food in the small urban spaces available to him over the last decade. Utilizing containers, and elevated beds with limited amounts of in-ground space as well as a cement patio and stretches of alleyway, he grows a majority of his own fresh food in and around his home.
After being recognized by his neighbors for his organic gardening style, he started the YouTube channel “the Urban Gardener” to share his gardening adventures through his many videos, in the garden and on the road visiting other gardeners.
Enoch grows all sorts of fruits and vegetables in his urban garden spaces. From cool season greens and brassicas to the warmer season tomatoes and peppers, as well as some container fruit trees and blueberries. He grows a good portion of his fresh food at home, sharing extras with friends and neighbors.
