Dr. John C. Trimble is an Associate Professor at Weber State University and co-founder of Foodscaping Utah, a nonprofit organization that helps people get started growing food in beautiful front yard foodscapes. He teaches Spanish and linguistics at the University and teaches how to grow delicious fruits and vegetables in the community. As a food, health and environmental activist, John believes everyone who eats should be passionate about food and that growing food in our landscapes is how we can weave sustainability into our daily lives because it reconnects us with not only where real, healthy, and sustainably produced food comes from, but with natural beauty and a sustainable lifestyle.
