gender pronouns: He, Him, His

Luke has grown up in downtown Winnipeg and has grown to love the diverse culture that flourishes in the inner city. He loves spending any amount of time in nature and around plants, especially when able to enjoy wild foods around a camp fire. He became interested in food security while studying engineering at the University of Manitoba and began to engage in activities to increase availability of fresh produce, especially in the harsh northern Manitoban climate. He loves working in the dirt, and as the Community Garden Intern, is eager to bring a love for fresh food to the Food Matters Manitoba Team.
