Caleb Whitney

After graduating from Grinnell College, Caleb Whitney left academia to earn his living with his hands and back in Door County. Restaurant shifts, carpentry, and even grave digging have finally settled into 10 years as a self-employed landscape gardener. Along with his ever-patient wife, Kristen Peil, Caleb is a gardening lecturer “for hire,” and their business, Green Side Up, has been featured four times on Wisconsin Public TV’s Wisconsin Gardener hosted by Shelley Ryan. His photographs have also appeared on three covers of the Peninsula Pulse. When not trying to keep up with his daughter Ida, Caleb serves as captain of the Baileys Harbor Fire Department. His most recent poetry endeavors appear in the spring 2009 issues of Wisconsin People and Ideas and Free Verse.
