Farmer & Author, The New Farm
Presentation: Are We Growing Too Much? – Tuesday 2/26, 9am-10am
About Brent: Brent Preston worked as a human rights investigator, aid worker, election observer and journalist on four continents before finding his true calling as a farmer. In 2003 he and his wife, Gillian Flies, abandoned successful careers in Toronto, packed up their two young children, and moved to a run-down farm outside Creemore, Ontario. Since then, they have built The New Farm into a thriving business and a leading light in the good food movement, providing organic vegetables to some of the best restaurants in Canada and raising over half a million dollars to make local, organic food accessible in low income communities.
