About the 11th Ave Garden Leaders:
Lance Cayko - Co-Garden Leader
Lance grew up in Western North Dakota splitting time between his family's sugar beet farm and a rural town of 500 people. His family always grew vegetable gardens and everyone in the family helped out in the garden from a very young age. Since then, he's been gardening at 11th avenue for over 4 years and typically grows tomatoes, potatoes, carrots, onions, peppers, cucumbers, and lettuce. Following the leads of his grandparents and parents his children Kyler and Kaiya also help out in the garden happily. :)
