Conor Fitzpatrick, who grew up eating fresh from the garden in his native Ireland, didn’t let city life dissuade him from

and figs. “There’s no better fruits and vegetables than from your own garden,” Conor says. He’s so passionate about getting
people to grow their own organic food that he created MinifarmBox (minifarmbox.com), a line of easy-to-assemble raised-bed kits.
