Urban Harvest Landscape Sponsor Profile

For the past 5 months, with the invaluable help of Joel Bakker of Urban Harvest Landscape, our Learning Garden at the Growing Chefs! Ontario Headquarters in London Ontario has seen amazing growth! In the garden you can find kale, chard, lettuce, beans, peas, beets, basil, mint, tomatoes, peppers, pansies and other flowers…and those are just to name a few. The secret to the successful growth and abundance of the garden lies in the way it’s been thoughtfully composed and maintained by Joel.

Joel has a long background in horticulture, spanning almost 20 years and more than 2 continents. Before founding Urban Harvest Landscape, Joel did community development work in Afghanistan, helping train farmers in new crops and improved growing techniques. Among a variety of other horticulture jobs, Joel has also worked budding and pruning fruit trees for a nursery in Canada and growing greenhouse peppers and tomatoes in the Netherlands, where he also earned a BSc in Horticulture from HAS Den Bosch. 

The Learning Garden has been in the care of very skilled and experienced hands! We send a huge heartfelt thank you to Joel for investing and sharing his knowledge, time, and care. If you or someone you know are looking for fruit and vegetable garden installation, maintenance, and/or coaching, Joel offers full and dependable services that we cannot recommend enough!
