Lora Hall got her start as a gardener in Los Angeles with a tiny plot of land in a community garden where she learned about growing both food and community. She now works professionally as a gardener and garden educator with a focus on edible gardening, fruit trees and California appropriate low water use landscapes. Lora also grows food and flowers for some of L.A.’s top restaurants. In 2009, she founded the Los Angeles Urban Chicken Enthusiasts to create a network for those interested in raising chickens in the city. Lora has a B.A. from U.C. Berkeley and an M.S from Cal Poly Pomona. She lives in Silverlake, where she composts, raises chickens and runs a small backyard nursery.
