About the Author
Colin McCrate and Brad Halm started the Seattle Urban Farm Co. in the spring of 2007 to answer one simple question: Does anybody need help setting up a vegetable garden? Turns out, quite a few. In addition to building gardens, including the award-winning, rooftop design for Seattle's Bastille restaurant, and providing private gardening instruction, they teach community classes and lead urban farming workshops. After getting their start working on farms and studying organic food in the Midwest for several years, McCrate and Halm now live in Seattle.
