some of you may have seen photographs of the raised garden that the “man in overalls” installed in my backyard this past spring. my family and i have truly enjoyed the experience of learning to garden and have relished eating food that we grew ourselves!

nathan ballentine aka the man in overalls is putting in raised gardens all over tallahassee. he also educates via speaking engagements, workshops and classes. he calls himself an “urban agricultural social entrepreneur” and  on top of all that….i think he is truly one of the sweetest men i have ever met!

i was invited to participate and document a class he recently taught to children with special needs and i wanted to share a few of the photographs with you here. the weather was lovely, the people were delightful, i learned a lot  and i cant wait to do this again!
