My name is Brandon Merchant and I am an organic gardener in living in Tucson, Arizona. I was born in Yuma grew up in the Phoenix Suburbs. I began gardening and composting in my backyard over ten years ago and now I would like to share the skills I have learned over the past decade growing fruits and vegetables in the hostile Arizona deserts with you.
I started Southwest Victory Gardens out of my love of our unique climate and my passion for helping others. At Southwest Victory Gardens we know how important it is to have a constant, reliable food source that is free of GMOs, synthetic pesticides, and the many other hazards associated with industrialized agriculture. Our goal is to provide Southern Arizonans with the growing environment, knowledge, and skills necessary to grow bountiful, delicious, and healthy produce in their own backyards, all year long.
