Bio: Sam started his career in farming as a hydroponics retail store manager. After forming 100 Gardens with Ron Morgan, Sam has been the lead designer for 100 Gardens’ aquaponics installations in schools, correctional facilities, trade shows and in Haiti. Sam was the horticulture instructor at the Stonewall Jackson Youth Development Center in Concord, NC and also currently sits on the Board of Directors for the Friends of St. Vincent’s School for the Handicapped in Port au Prince, Haiti. Sam is a Charlotte, NC native, and a graduate of Vance High School. Sam currently plays guitar for regional metal band Dirty South Revolutionaries.
Started as a rebuilding strategy for victims of the 2010 Haiti earthquake, 100 Gardens has evolved into a multifaceted educational program focused on aquaponics as a platform for experimental learning and a sustainable means of food production for the future. Sam Fleming serves as Co-Director and is putting this Charlotte-based non-profit on the national radar.
