He now leads the Earth Sheltered Greenhouse Project, with a team building an innovative year-round grow structure at the O'Brien Farm in St. John's to demonstrate the potential for year-round food production. He is also the founder and chairperson of Food Producers Forum, Inc., a provincial non-profit supporting expansion of community-based food production.
