Curtis Stone is an urban SPIN (Small Plot INtensive) farmer meaning he makes a living farming on city lots in Kelowna. There are two of his fields along the route. Curtis generously gave us an interview at the Green City Acres booth at the Kelowna Farmers’ and Crafters’ Market.  Curtis gives talks across North America. Here’s a link to this substantial  video on Urban Farming and this trailer for the documentary Spinning Green.

Thank you to everyone who took time out to speak with us and who have generously agreed to allow us to view their yards. We couldn’t have done it without you!
