About the Instructor
Mik Turje has been working in community food and agriculture for over a decade.

Then as a community development worker in the food and urban agriculture movements. Mik was the Urban Agriculture Coordinator at The Stop Community Food Centre in Toronto for many years, where they taught a full slate of gardening workshops and mentored new gardeners, and also ran the Renfrew-Collingwood Food Security Institute for 3 years.
