About this episode's guest, Brian Fuder

My name is Brian and I am so excited to be able to become a part of the Square Foot Gardening team. I remember as a high school kid watching Mel’s PBS show in the mid 80’s during the winter up here in the Red River Valley of the North in Breckenridge, MN, 45 miles south of Fargo, ND, when it would be 20 below zero and thinking “Can’t wait for spring!” I was born and raised in Breckenridge MN a small farming community in the heart of the Red River Valley. In high school I worked for a Sunflower and Corn research facility where I would work in the breading nurseries in the summers and the green houses during the winters trying to cross the next most perfect ear of corn. My how things have changed.
 
I have been active in SFG for most of my life in various ways with my making a large change just two years ago when we moved to a new home with limited yard space. Ever since then, I have been asked to give advice and ideas and to help others build their little slices of heaven. I explain the SFG system and “Tylenol Free Gardening”. This year I have been again asked to help and one friend suggested that I teach the method and as they say, here I am. I am in the planning stages of kicking off full speed yet this spring here in Moorhead, where I intend to gain access to about 1000 sq feet of gardening area to host a season long successful gardening hands on training. I am also a certified John Maxwell trainer and I do masterminds and leadership seminars and I am always tying gardening and leadership together and I love the way I can share my passion for leadership, gardening and my faith in such a positive way. I am a truly passionate person who only wants to add value to others and pass on to others what has been passed on to me and what I have also learned along the way.
