Horticulturist/ Urban Agriculturist Rebecca Davis Scott graduated with distinction from Guelph University for Horticulture with a focus on Urban Agriculture. She previously worked as a beekeeper on an organic lavender farm and is now working as an Urban Agriculturist with Green Thumbs in Regent Park & Cabbagetown. With Green Thumbs, her team is taking care of a large green roof and three school gardens where they teach programs to children and spread the word about the importance of growing your own food. Urban Agriculture is more important than ever and Rebecca is very excited to talk about bio intensive gardens and growing the most you can in small spaces.
