Meet Our Crew

Mike

Mike is the master farmer and chief mycologist at our urban farm. He is self-taught - learning by reading books and scouring the internet before finding himself heading to the grocery store to get a mushroom to clone. After that successful cloning attempt, his farm started in his closet and quickly expanded to consume his entire basement, garage, and half the front yard. Mike's ultimate long-term goal is to grow mushrooms in space, but until he gets on a rocket, he's going to hang out with Julia and grow the best mushrooms on this planet.

Julia

Julia worked as an aerospace engineer for 10 years before deciding to branch out into the fantastic world of fungi. Mike and Julia had many adventures together, growing up in small town outside of St. Louis. When the opportunity arose for Julia to join Mike on this wild venture into urban farming, she couldn't say no. At the farm, Julia combines two of her greatest passions - problem solving and growing things! With Julia around to keep Mike in line, the mission of VL's Urban Farm is rapidly becoming a reality.
