Aaron Brinkman was raised in the Imperial Valley of California surrounded by agriculture, but now farms in the urban context of inner-city San Diego. He currently serves as the farm manager for UrbanLife Farms, a non-profit community development organization, where he focuses on first time job-training for high-schoolers and developing young leaders. Between the youth, dedicated volunteers and Aaron, a diversity of fresh vegetables are pulled from the ground weekly for a CSA as well as several market tables.
