A backyard for a foodie
Conor Fitzpatrick, who grew up eating fresh from the garden in his native Ireland, didn’t let city life dissuade him from
turning his Los Angeles backyard into his own private farmers’ market. “There’s no better fruits and vegetables than from
your own garden,” Conor says. He’s passionate about getting people to grow organic food, so he created MinifarmBox (minifarmbox.com)
, a line of easy-to-assemble raised-bed kits.
