Anthony grew up in Dodge City, Ks, where he spent a good portion of his adolescence working in the golf course turf industry. There, his love of working with the verdant outdoors was solidified. Attaining his bachelor’s degree in Horticulture from Kansas State University, he ventured into the realms of ornamental horticulture, landscape maintenance, landscape design, estate garden management, greenhouse management, and fruit & vegetable production.
His previous work includes six years as the horticulturist for the City of Garden City, Ks, where he was tasked with designing, implementing, and maintaining public landscapes, and two and a half years with K-State Research and Extension’s West Plains District as their horticulture agent.
Anthony greatly admires the vast array of work being done with specialty crops in the Kansas City area and the dedication exhibited by local growers. He is very enthusiastic about partnering with and assisting local growers and at-home gardeners alike. His personal goal of both educating and feeding the masses drives him in his work to help keep a sustainable, eco-friendly, health-conscious, and well-functioning local food production system in the Kansas City area.
