"We need to step back, reconnect with our neighbors and nature." Jeremy St Onge.
Jeremy.... life partner with Lucy.... a dad....a trapper....a fisherman.....a gardener....a neighbor and a teacher at Canadore College. Interdependency and access to local food production builds resiliency. Jeremy is familiar with survival. He grew up in the country with a small hobby farm. The local animals and birds fascinated him. He could not imagine doing anything else with his life!
He obtained his Biology Degree from Nipissing University and Canador College and for the past four years has been teaching the Environmental Technology Program.
Jeremy and Lucy with their three children value independence. They are both Biologists. They have chosen a very simple life style. Both know how to grow and harvest their own food and how to trap and fish. They enjoy sharing this knowledge with others.
Jeremy’s hopes for Transition Town North Bay are:
- to help people get to where they want to be
- to bring community together
- to foster food projects like Community Gardens
Lucy feels that ‘food security’ can be exciting because each day we get to choose our relationship with food! Food security is approachable – not like solving the atomic energy struggle!
Jeremy does a lot of ‘glouting’, he’s free to live a simple life style. He likes to bring people together to share good food and good conversation.
