About Farmer Joe Lecak:
I started farming when I was in my early teens, in New Jersey. My stepfather used to make me turn over the dirt in his garden when I needed discipline. The garden was large and this sometimes happened 2-3 times a week! I took an interest in what he was doing and carried this love for gardening to this day. I am always amazed when something I put effort into, flourishes.
I’m a part time instructor at the College of Southern Nevada where I teach a 3-week course in vegetable gardening each semester. I’m a certified personal trainer with a specialty in senior fitness. My philosophy is that fitness and nutrition are intertwined: If you want to change your diet, grow it. If you grow it you will eat it.
