Amy Oi Ning ChengSocial Enterprise Logistics and Administrative Coordinator
Amy comes from a recent background in small-scale ecological farming and food-justice programming coordination since 2011. Her farming work has included farming and managing the Black Creek Community Farm's market garden, as well as operating her own enterprise as Red Pocket Farm specializing in Chinese vegetables. Her programming work has supported various GTA organizations, institutions, and initiatives - mostly in the capacity of connecting, teaching and supporting urban growers and learners of all ages.
Prior to farming and community food work, Amy also has a background in visual arts and technical arts production. She continues to make work in her personal time.
Personally, her and her family immigrated to Toronto from Hong Kong when she was 7 years old and she grew up mostly in Scarborough. She brings these lived experiences being part of a 1st generation Cantonese-Chinese-Canadian family to much of her work.
Amy is passionate about helping communities access healthy and culturally significant foods, whether it is through growing, purchasing, sharing, and/or learning.
