Mykl Nelson
Urban agriculturalist
Hello, and welcome to me! A world citizen intent on feeding the globe.
A LITTLE
ABOUT ME
I grew up in a military family and we travelled the world. I've reached five of seven continents (thus far). Top of my bucket list is to make it to space--or even Mars!

I'm currently an instructor of urban agriculture for Oregon State University. I'm also the lifecycle consultant on a team experimenting with insect protein production.

Reach out to me if you want to chat about urban agricultural production, insect rearing, or other world-changing activities!

MY PRIMARY INTENTIONS

Urban Gardens

My research has yielded data which challenges the dominant advice to simply 'add organic matter' to solve soil problems.

Insect Protein

I'm pursuing experiments which convert food waste to protein and fat for feed and biofuel.

Open Source

The highest purpose of humanity is to ease existence. We do this by sharing with and helping one another.
