Gerry, AKA the Recovering Farmer, comes from a diverse background of experience, learning and discovery. He grew up on a farm and in 1983 took over the family farm. He operated the farm until 2007 when other interests demanded more and more of his time.
Gerry’s passion is in helping others find solutions for the various issues that life throws at us. A combination of his own journey with anxiety and depression, training in conflict resolution and intensive counseling training provide him the tools to help others who are struggling. As such he has presented widely, across Canada, to a variety of audiences challenging listeners to “talk about it” and has been recognized nationally for being a champion of mental health and agriculture.
