Jessica Barnes

I'm a passionate gardener, cook, and learner. After completing my MA in Political Science and Environmental Studies I started working on an Urban Farm in Toronto, Canada. I learned a lot growing organically on my plot while also teaching. From there I started a business with a friend growing herbs in the backyards of Toronto and selling in food boxes, markets, and to friends and family. I've been involved with Master Gardeners of Ontario, community horticultural groups and permaculture groups. As much as I am a teacher, I'm also a student of the earth and I'm looking forward to hearing about your experiences out in the garden.
