Edible Eden was founded to help people connect with their food source, learn about how food is produced and enjoy the healthiest, freshest and most local food they can get.
Edible Eden Founder, Josh Rosenstein
Josh is an Israeli-American farmer, chef, writer, Permaculturalist and entrepreneur with roots on both sides of the sea. He has over twenty years experience working with plants; from retail nurseries and propagation centers, to agriculture of every stripe, as well as landscaping, xeriscaping, and roof gardens. Before founding Edible Eden, he worked as a writer in the PNW and later at the Adamah program at The Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center and Kayam farm at the Pearlstone Center in Reisterstown, MD.
Josh first studied Permaculture at the Bullock Brothers Permaculture Homestead on Orcas Island in 2006 and has subsequently volunteered, worked and taught at permaculture sites and ecovillages around the world. He has also spent time in the IDF, worked on fishing boats, farms, labor crews, trucks, and in kitchens all over the world.
Equipped with a lifelong passion for ethical eating and farm-to-table cooking, Josh delights in the magic of turning seeds, soil and sunshine into delicious things to eat. Through Edible Eden, Josh aspires to help people have more direct connections to their food sources and educate people about how to grow, prepare and enjoy local foods.
Josh currently lives in NW Baltimore where he and his wife Teri are busy transforming their suburban property into a micro-farm. You can contact Josh at Josh@EdibleEdenFoodscapes.com.
