Tim has built numerous relationships and partnerships with community leaders and other local citizens related to gardening and urban agriculture. As Tim says,

“One passion of mine is to engage in on-farm urban agricultural research with farmers, students and faculty to address challenges faced by increasing urban heat due to global climate change."
