Paul Anderson was raised in Bayport, NY spending free time plodding through the swamps and wetlands of the Brown’s River and Lotus Lake. Paul has an Associates in Laboratory Technology from Suffolk County Community College and a B.S. in Bioscience from Farmingdale State College. Paul has been accredited by the New England Organic Farming Association’s (NOFA) Organic Land Care Program. In 2005 Paul began working with the Long Island Native Plant Initiative (LINPI). He was the founding President upon incorporation as non-profit 501(c)3 in 2011. In the past 12 years LINPI has produced around 300,000 plants of some 70 species, and further has brought thousands of pounds of ecotypic seed to the regional market. Today, with the members of LINPI, Paul is involved in seed collection, propagation, and cropping of Long Island’s native plants for seed production and landscape improvement.
