"Green" Deane Jordan is a life-long Greek bachelor with a degree in music and graduate studies in communications. In short, he's paid to play and write. He is the author of many articles and two other books: 1001 Facts Somebody Screwed Up and 1001 More Facts Somebody Screwed Up. He doesn't own or watch television, and he is not a vegetarian (a common assumption). Green Deane's hobbies include gardening, cooking, collecting cast iron cookware, dancing, canoeing, public speaking, kayaking, cast netting, fishing, biking, hiking in Greece whenever possible, and, of course, foraging for wild foods and other unusual edibles. He has planted over 12 dozen different kinds of edible plants--cultivated and wild--on his small suburban lot in Central Florida, and he maintains a year-round 20' by 20' garden. On his cul-de-sac, he is the only one without a lawn of decapitated grass, much to his neighbors' collective horror; he thinks of it as green diversity. Green Deane is also a musician and a writer. He is perhaps best known for his popular foraging website, Eat the Weeds.
