Meet Your Urban Farmer: Curtis Stone, Green City Acres, Kelowna

Curtis Stone, owner / urban farmer at his Green City Acres, is a very successful urban farmer in Kelowna, British Columbia. He's defied the critics ("you can't farm in cities and make money!) and is now in his third year of urban farming on borrowed residential front and back yards in downtown Kelowna.

I met him in his very first year of SPIN farming in downtown Kelowna (the interview is in the "Vancouver" chapter of the book). Since then, he's become an in-demand speaker with his SPIN farming seminars, and even as a TED talk speaker.

Here's a brand new video featuring Curtis. It's part of the excellent "Meet Your Urban Farmer" -- a short film series that introduces us to 18 urban farmers in and around the metro Vancouver area by Fire and Light Media Group.
