About Chris Bisson

CKB was born, and mostly raised in Ottawa. He is the primary farmer looking after the farm full-time. He grew up gardening and has worked on two different farms. During his undergraduate education in geography at Carleton University he became obsessed with horticulture and food politics. In his M.A. in geography at CU he researched and wrote a thesis on the urban planning challenges to ecological agriculture in the Ottawa Greenbelt.

CKB completed a Permaculture Design Course in 2011 through the Permaculture Institute of Eastern Ontario. Since then he has managed the design and construction of the Kitigànensag GSA Carleton Community Garden.

He was also contracted by Operation Come Home to manage the Farm Works social enterprise CSA Farm. The program offered job training and work for at-risk youth interested in a future in food production.

He frequently delivers workshops and talks on ecological agriculture, permaculture, and food politics.

CKB is currently a PhD candidate in Political Science at L’Université d’Ottawa where he is researching policy and planning practices to make urban land more accessible to young farmers.
