Punk Rock Farmer

Aldine “Al” Grossi is passionate about two things in life: music & good food. To fans of radio station KRCL, Aldine is known as the Punk Rock Farmer, a head-banging nod to his early years as a Salt Lake City punk rocker. Aldine introduces us to one of the most prolific urban farms in SLC: Wasatch Community Gardens’ Green Phoenix Farm, which empowers Utahns to grow their own organic, local food.
