ABOUT OUR SPEAKER

Our main resource speaker is Sustainable Farmer Drew (Andrew Gerren), founder of Garden to Gardens (G2G). One of his passions is creating sustainable gardens and food “forests” in urban settings.

Farmer Drew is known for creating unique, innovative, low-maintenance, high-yielding sustainable gardens, edible landscapes and food forest. He utilizes a diverse array of gardening applications along with native plant integration. His main focus starts with stockfree farming techniques which is also supplemented with other conscientious and self-sufficient gardening methods such as permaculture, natural farming, and biodynamics.

He regularly conducts lectures, seminars and teachings to others on a variety of topics about sustainable gardening, food sovereignty, environmentalism, and wild edible/medicinal plants.
