FSteven Biggs: farm writer, garden writer, food writer, and garden speaker.arm, Garden, Food communicator

As an urbanite with an agricultural science degree and work experience in the agricultural sector, I make sense of farm, garden, and food issues for the urban public—and write about urban food thinkers, trends, and happenings for the farm sector.

Farm, Garden, Food Pedigree

I have worked in horticulture and agriculture for more than 20 years. Along with studying horticultural science at the University of Guelph, I worked in greenhouse and nursery production, plant propagation, biological controls, horticultural supplies, and farm marketing.
