Weston, a Tucson, Arizona native, manages the farmers and handles the complex logistics of a disaggregated urban farm, a difficult and often thankless job. He likes pets, flowers, and overcast days. He reads graphic novels and listens to KCRW. He is 6 feet, 2 inches tall but has yet to develop his skills as a basketball player.
Farmscape is seeking a part-time urban farmer for coastal Los Angeles south of the 10 freeway. We anticipate the position will grow to full-time work within a year.
