The Toronto Star
The Gallery and Antony John are mentioned in the Toronto Star’s article about the new and changing food scene in Stratford.
“No volunteers and no offshore workers,” are two of artist/farmer Antony John’s rules at Soiled Reputation, where he grows salad greens and other produce with 15 summer and five winter staff.
The “painter who farms” (and just had his first exhibition at Agora Gallery) has greenhouses, 24 beehives and 130 species of birds just outside of Stratford.
He sells his food mainly to restaurants, but insists he’s managing an ecosystem, not running a farm: “I consider my main crop to be biodiversity and I subsidize that by selling my vegetables.”
