Gender Pronouns: he, him, his

David grew up in Winnipeg’s Elmwood neighbourhood. From an early age, he spent many summer days in his parents’ and grandma’s gardens, eating vegetables right out of the ground or in the Whiteshell, harvesting blueberries. After earning a B.Sc. in Biological Sciences, he started working in community development and discovered a passion for teaching kids how to grow and prepare their own food. David is a citizen of the Metis Nation and is passionate about traditional foods and food systems and keeping these important parts of culture alive.
