My mission is to add bamboo to American Agriculture. I moved from Seattle, Washington USA in October 2010 to Perry, Georgia USA. I moved to Georgia because Robby Russell and Mike Hotchkiss of Georgia Bamboo, a wholesale bamboo nursery, invited me to work with their groves. They support my research both by allowing me to use their groves and by providing me with advice and encouragement.
I staked out 1000 square foot research plots in four of their groves in Fort Valley GA and eight of their groves in Bonaire GA. I will say more about my work in later blogs. Meanwhile I am fortunate to have moved in June 2011 into one of Robby’s rental houses in Perry. Here is the view from my bedroom window.
