Bill Shores manages several urban residential spaces that function both as high yield food gardens and as lushly planted outdoor living and entertaining spaces. Several of these gardens produce specialty crops for high end Chicago restaurants including the Rick Bayless restaurants, Topolobampo, Xoco, and Frontera Grill. He specializes in space-efficient gardening systems suited to the urban/suburban environment including container gardens, indoor gardens, raised beds, rooftop gardens, and intensively planted small space, in-ground gardens, all of which utilize season extension, composting and plant propagation techniques.
Spend the day with Bill Shores! Enroll in Mulching with Healthy Soils and go home armed with knowledge for the gardening season ahead.
