ABOUT YOUR FARMER
Jonah has been passionate about growing and eating good food since he tasted his first garden fresh tomato as a child. The flavour, texture, colour and smell was beyond anything he had experienced from grocery store produce. This modest experience planted a seed in his mind that would change his life. In 2012, Jonah became a member farmer at Fresh City Farms and had the ability to test out farming in Toronto on a commercial scale. The experience was eye opening as small scale urban farming was even more difficult to make viable than he imagined. Jonah realized that he had to approach farming from a different angle to make it feasible in a city setting.
After many winters without farm fresh produce, Jonah saw a unique opportunity to provide quality greens and herbs year round. In 2013, Jonah started an innovative indoor farm right in Toronto called Living Earth Farm and by 2015 became Ontario’s first certified organic vertical farm. Jonah hopes to be a part of the positive change in Ontario’s food system and inspire others to do the same, so the next generation will inherit a healthier planet with healthier people.
