Your Farmers

Here’s a little bit about us: 
 
Duncan (he/him): My journey into urban farming started in 2014 in Hamilton Ontario (Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee territory), where I spent four seasons working, and two living, on a multi-site, organic, urban farm called Backyard Harvest, while attending McMaster University (where Liana and I met in 2015). I moved to Vancouver in 2018 for a master’s in landscape architecture at UBC. I love to study history and ecology, play music, and make gardens. 
  
Liana (she/her): I grew up in North Vancouver on traditional and unceded Tsleil-Waututh, Squamish, and Musqueam territory. I took on City Beet without much farming background but with a passion for community and the environment. So far it has been an excellent adventure. I love working with my hands and being outside. If you spot me working in one of our yards with my headphones in, I'm probably listening to an audiobook.
