Matthew is a passionate community activist who (with lots of his friends) is working with local schools, governments and city park officials to encourage the application of design principles that mimic natural systems and support functional productive ecologies. This means that Matthew is always trying to plant useful trees, shrubs, herbs and vegetables in public places where everyone can benefit from them. He gardens in: 14 schools, 3 Mental Health and Addictions Facilities, 1 Adult Education Center, 1 big community Food Forest, and in some places where you’re not actually supposed to plant things (don’t tell anyone).
