Ramsey McPhillips has been gardening professionally since the age of 11. He gave his first lecture on ‘How to Compost’ at the first Earth Day. Sadly, only his older brother attended the lecture. But he’s never given up and after receiving an Environmental Studies degree from Bowdoin College he established a career as a globe trotting Hortivangelist (garden therapist) and farmer. Ramsey is the founding President Of Zero Waste McMinnville and is working primarily to divert all of McMinnville’s compostable waste shed back into fertile soil.
