Bren Smith, owner of Thimble Island Ocean Farm and Executive Director of GreenWave
When I heard Bren Smith present at Bioneers 2016 last October, I literally jumped up from my seat to get to the line forming of people who wanted to talk to Bren. My mission? Get him on the MGW show. He is AMAZING, fun, funny, inspiring and brilliant. A lifelong commercial fisherman since age 14, Bren has pioneered “restorative 3D ocean farming” to restore ecosystems, mitigate climate change, create blue-green jobs for fishermen, and ensure healthy food for communities. From a very young age, Bren witnessed the destruction of the ocean firsthand. In a quest for a better way, he pioneered a revolutionary new model of harvesting bounty from the seas. Join us to hear Bren’s story including his future vision for restorative 3-D ocean farming. To me Bren is the Triple Bottom Line (People, Plant, Profit) all wrapped up in one human being with a very big heart. Please join us. This show made possible doe to the generous support of The Fairfax Companies.
