Sean Smith, the head proprietor and brewer of Crooked Farmz, is originally a native of Kingston, ON, but has been growing vegetables in the East York area for the past 17 years. His interest in developing a local CSA for composting and compost tea brewing emerges from a deeper underlying passion about soil health, microbial life, and our relationships with land and water.
In 2019 he won first place in the DIY Innovation category in the Best in GrowTO urban gardening contest for improvements to an urban composting method, and in Spring 2020 won a Landscape Ontario Horticultural Trades Association bursary to develop compost tea workshop resources in Toronto. He has received awards for entrepreneurial excellence from Acadia University and the University of Alberta, and was recently profiled by Humans Who Grow Food.
