Instructor Jeff Klein has been gardening, baking, and perfecting homemaking for more than 15 years. Curiously, Jeff’s first cooking and baking jobs were at McMurdo Research Station in Antarctica, where he once jumped into the subfreezing ocean on a dare. In addition to Community Education, Jeff has been a science teacher and tutor in both middle and high school. An accomplished gardener and scholar of all things green, Jeff studied environmental science at Brown University and earned an MS in Forest Ecology and Natural Resources from Cornell University. He now runs a carbon-neutral garden design and maintenance business for homeowners.

There is a minimum age requirement of 16.
