Regional Program Coordinator,
British Columbia

David started his farming career in Vancouver, working with the Environmental Youth Alliance, running gardening programs for youth out of Cottonwood and Strathacona Community gardens. He has had the opportunity to experiment with seed growing/breeding, low till annual production, intercropping and companion planting while working with Glorious Organics Co-op in Aldergrove, BC. He has taught workshops in gardening, composting, permaculture, and seed saving to adults and children all over the lower mainland.

David lives at Fraser Common Farm Co-op where he and his wife have farmed and homeschooled their three children. David enjoys learning directly from the soil, seeds, plants, and children who are part of his farmscape, and looks forward to bringing his enthusiasm for the perpetuation and promotion of sustainable seed growing to producers and consumers across BC.
