Andy Lopez grew up in Puerto Rico where his mother first introduced him to the use of Organics. She grew her own fruits and vegetables using natural concoctions to control pests and enhance soil fertility and plant growth. This exposure to organic gardening techniques laid the foundation of Andy's philosophy. In 1970, after serving 2 years in the US Navy, Andy entered the University of Florida, in Gainesville and he now has a BS degree in Business from the University of Phoenix.
Many of the gardening techniques taught in schools encouraged chemical use. Andy noticed that the natural concoctions he had grown up with worked just as well, in fact better, because they added nutrients to the soil and did not disrupt the fine chain of life that Mother Nature so delicately put into place. He noted that weak plants were most attacked by pests, so it was up to the astute gardener to strengthen the plants and soil with nutrients not inundate them with chemical pesticides and herbicides.
Andy began to experiment and improve upon the natural concoctions his mother had used incorporating ingredients from all over the world. He used these products on gardens of clients with astonishing results. He got the nickname "The Invisible Gardener" doing his gardening work at night while attended University of Florida. Andy explains, he is not the “Invisible Gardener” at all--Nature is, “I am just one of her helpers”. In 1972, he founded The Invisible Gardener Inc. with the intention of providing alternatives to chemical products used in the home and garden and thus make an impact on the world's environmental problems. With a common sense approach and an endless enthusiasm, he champions the wisdom of Mother Nature through a variety of educational programs, books and media.
With the emerging awareness of Organics throughout the 70's and 80's, Andy Lopez became recognized and respected as an expert in the field. Consequently, Andy was invited to serve on the Board of Directors of The Horticultural Society of Florida, The Rare Fruit Council and the South Florida Rose Society and acted as a consultant to the Department of Agriculture. A dynamic speaker, he is regularly asked to address organizations such as the World Health Organization, Sustainable Agricultural Committee, the Cancer Society and various state horticultural societies and public interest groups.
In 1975, Andy taught Organic Horticulture at the Miami Dade Community College Environmental Center and formed the Organic Growers Club, a national organization devoted to healing the Earth. Eager to reach more people, he turned to radio and for several years hosted “Talks With The Invisible Gardener". Another radio show was broadcast world wide via satellite on the USA Patriot Network. Andy has made his appearance on national television and was a guest of the ABC Home Show and PBS New Garden series.
Over the last 2 decades, Andy's expertise has become world renown. He has been featured in journals and publications such as Sunset Magazine, Southern California Home and Garden, The Miami Herald, the Los Angeles Times and Eco-Farm and frequently publishes articles in Organic Gardening, Horticultural Digest and Acres, USA. His books, including The Organic Gardener's Manual, The Organic Home and Gardening guide (How To Heal The Earth in Your Spare Time), The Crystal Gardener, People's Yellow Pages of Florida, the New Age Travelers Guide and his latest book, Natural Pest Control (Alternatives to Chemicals for the Home and Garden)
have found wide-spread appeal with farmers, horticulturists and home
