Nick Collins’ urban farming company, TAPFT Green Solutions, has been around for four years — a respectable length of time for a small business but not a massive history. But in educating businesses, home owners and renters in the Los Angeles area and beyond about how to grow their own food, Collins has all of human history on his side.

Only in the last hundred years have most citizens of the world been fed by industrial farming and mammoth food-producing corporations. When Collins advises people on how to start growing vegetables, fruits, and much more in their backyard or on their apartment balcony, he’s helping them get back to an essential component of humanity — using tools, supporting themselves, and caring for the planet.

Hear more in the video above about the resources Collins’ company provides, as well as the moment he realized he couldn’t buy into a broken food-production system.
