Grant’s passion is with urban agriculture, which includes small-scale food production, and local food security. Grant developed Plant Science 235 – Urban Agriculture, which draws almost 100 students per year from across campus. This course helps students learn how to grow food within city limits, both from a domestic and commercial basis. Grant is very involved in the local urban food movement, and can often be found promoting local food production to a wide variety of audiences. Grant’s work has been recognized locally, provincially and nationally, and he has received university awards in teaching, plus outreach and engagement.
