Jetson grew up gardening in south Florida. In 2007 he attended an extension program at the University of California, Santa Cruz called “CASFS”, Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems. At CASFS he gathered a foundation of knowledge about everything from bed preparation and pest control to bouquet making and good record keeping.
