Our Facilitator: Alberto Suarez Esteban grew up helping his grandparents in their gardens and farms in NW Spain. His passion for nature led him to a Ph.D. in Ecology. He has raised both plants and animals in many climates, from Spain to the Yukon. In 2019 he founded Nature’s Apprentice Farm in Pakenham where he uses regenerative techniques to grow vegetables, eggs and flowers for our community. Alberto loves learning and inspiring other people. He teaches biology courses at Carleton University and regularly shares his farming experiences in workshops, talks and farm tours.
