Chris is the Jack-of-all-trades-master-of-none at the Food Pedalers. Working in agriculture since 2001, the Food Pedalers are helping Chris realize his dream of farming without actually having to bend over. When away from work you can find Chris running, biking, or snowboarding in the mountains – depending on the season. Check out his consulting website at urbanmicro.ca.
Ross arrived in Vancouver in 2013 determined to break free of the 9 to 5 lifestyle and explore sustainable agriculture. First, he got an internship with the folks at Inner City Farms, spending the summer turning lawns into flourishing urban farms. He also worked for Vancouver Farmers Markets as a tireless advocate of the local food scene and occasional wrangler of errant dogs and children. Here he met Chris Thoreau and the rest is history. Ross became a member of the Co-op in 2014 and plans to further his skills and knowledge as a grower and, maybe one day in the not to distant future, enroll in a sustainable agriculture program.
