Mary believes that food is a fundamental human right that has the capacity to nourish us as individuals and as communities. Her experience with obtaining her permaculture training in Nepal, working as an urban farmer and community garden animator in Toronto, and background in non-profit organizations spurred her interest in further understanding the intersections between food security, sustainability, and climate change. Mary completed her Masters in Public Policy and currently works as a policy and program advisor for Indigenous Education. She’s excited to bridge her knowledge of policy with food security. In her spare time, you might be able to spot her dancing with her headphones on the TTC, yelling yum as she eats something delicious, or rock climbing.
