Gavin's lived in Thunder Bay for ten years, spending the last few working with Roots. He brings an array of personas and his best medicine of humour with him where he goes and works. He comes from a background of outdoor education which he earned his undergraduate degree in at Lakehead University and several years in parks. Inspired to continue connecting with others through the experience and discussion of food has become a trial of joy and deep learning. Outside of work he loves adventures in the outdoors, nerding out with creative writing and getting sucked into good shows. He finds a deep satisfaction working alongside the amazing community of people who support, challenge and inspire the work at Roots to Harvest.
