Deven is passionate about rebuilding our connection to the natural world and cultivating healthy and resilient communities.
Deven holds a Bachelor of Arts in Child and Youth Care from the Toronto Metropolitan University. Upon graduating, he was awakened to the inequality in our food system and the importance of growing one’s own food to build self and community resilience and has been growing and foraging food ever since. He believes in honoring ancestral traditions through farming, cooking, and wildcrafting.
After two growing seasons on the Local Food team, Deven is eager to connect with more youth to build leadership skills and promote positive environmental and reconciliatory action within the community.
