McCauley Gardener Naomi Pahl
What is your name and how did you get into gardening?
My name is Dustin Bajer, and I got into gardening as a kid. Gardening was something I hated – something I had to do. I grew up on an acreage so weeding, tilling, planting, picking rocks – they were all chores that I had to do. I don’t think that I started gardening for fun until I left home but it’s been a passion ever since.
In 2009, I took a Master Gardening Certificate at the University of Alberta Botanic Garden and a Permaculture Design Certificate through Verge and Pacific Permaculture. Thanks, Mom and Dad for getting me started….
Naomi Pahl is an artist, designer, inner-city homesteader, up-cycler, nature lover, wife and mother of 4 living and gardening in McCauley.
Dustin Bajer moved to McCauley in the fall of 2014. He is a master gardener, urban beekeeper, permaculture designer, and educator. Dustin is passionate about working with nature.
