About the author:
Brian Caldwell is the Farm Education Coordinator for the New York Chapter of the Northeast Organic Farming Association (NOFA-NY). For 20 years, he and his wife, Twinkle Griggs, ran Hemlock Grove Farm, a small commercial organic vegetable and fruit farm in hilly West Danby, N.Y. They helped found the Finger Lakes Organic Co-op and were active members in the Ithaca Farmers Market (another farmer-owned cooperative) during that time. He received a Master of Science degree in Floriculture and Ornamental Horticulture from Cornell University in 1986. As a Cornell Cooperative Extension Educator, Brian advised commercial vegetable and berry growers in a five-county region from 1995 until 2002, when he started with NOFA-NY. He keeps from getting too stale by managing a certified organic apple orchard in partnership with West Haven Farm of Ithaca, N.Y.
