Over the past ten years, Jake has been involved in the establishment and/or management of at least one dozen vineyards in France, Washington, Michigan, and Ohio. His international work and travel has enabled him to teach, learn from, and work with growers around the globe. Giving back, especially to the next generation of gardeners and farmers, has always been a central part of Jake’s career. He has personally created and taught at educational programs and seminars on various modern horticulture techniques across the United States in front of audiences ranging from school age kids to fellow industry professionals.  Passing along the knowledge and experiences Jake has already amassed in his young career is a guiding principle of Root 42 Harvests.More about Jake Emling:Website: https://www.root42harvests.com/More about Joe Swartz:Website: https://amhydro.com/Twitter: https://twitter.com/HydroConsultantMore about Nick Greens: Website: https://www.nickgreens.com Twitter: https://twitter.com/InfoGreensSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/nickgreens)
