Eugene Cooke has been growing food and developing creative, community partnerships for over a decade. He believes that artistic expression and sustainable living are the keys to vibrant social systems. Working as an employee with national non-profits and schools inspired Eugene to create ‘gebsite.com,' which helps people grow their own food at homes, schools, churches, community centers and parks. Eugene has assisted in developing gardens and mini-farms in California, Georgia, Washington D.C., Oregon, Florida and Kenya. He has been teaching visual art, environmental and agricultural science to children and adults for over 10 years.
