Greg is a newcomer to Kamloops, having moved here in the spring of 2017 with his partner so she could pursue a career opportunity. He is originally from the heart of the prairies: Winnipeg, where everything is flatter and colder. He grew up in rural northern Saskatchewan around farmers, before moving to Winnipeg for university.

Greg has years of experience with the food industry and with non-profits. He has worked as a cook at various restaurants, and later spent eight years working at Winnipeg’s central food bank, Winnipeg Harvest, as the Assistant Warehouse Manager. The importance of food in peoples’ lives was made clear to him over and over again during his time there. He has also volunteered in various capacities at a couple of community bicycle shops in Winnipeg. These experiences deepened his beliefs in the importance of community and grassroots sustainability.

Greg looks forward to meeting the everyone at the Kamloops Farmers Market, and to eating all the delicious local food that the Thompson Valley has to offer. Get to the market early enough, and you can say hi to him as he rolls up on his trusty bicycle.
