AJ’s mother and grandparents grew up just blocks away from the Green Plate Special garden, and his passion for gardening started with his grandfather who would let him pick zucchini, Asian pear, and pumpkins, among other things, when he’d go over as a child. When AJ isn’t working, he can be found Instagramming his dinners, seeking out local food all around the world, hosting friends for Husky sporting events, or wishing he worked out more.
