Author Profile

Urban farmer and landscape designer Jimmy Williams grew up in a family of 12 children in eastern Long Island, NY. He learned to garden from his Gullah grandmother Eloise, a descendant of Caribbean slaves who believed that working the soil fed the soul as well as the body. After his first career as a New York sportswear designer, Williams moved to California in the 1980s and planted his own garden in the spirit of hers. This tiny city lot quickly spawned an heirloom seedling business and then a design operation that sidelined sportswear forever. These days, when he’s not overseeing his growing grounds or planting edible gardens for clients, Williams, along with his son Logan, dispenses cultivation and cooking tips, plus vegetable, herb, and fruit seedlings, at three Los Angeles farmers’ markets.
