Jean-Martin Fortier

thumb Jean-Martin Fortier (born 1978) is a Québécois farmer, author, educator and advocate for ecological, human-scale and economically-viable sustainable agriculture.

He is the founder, with his wife, Maude-Hélène Desroches, of ''Les Jardins de la Grelinette'', a certified organic market garden in Saint-Armand, Quebec. The farm has become internationally known for achieving profitability and productivity using biologically intensive cropping systems. The low-tech, high-yield methods of production employed on the micro-farm form the basis of Fortier's book, ''The Market Gardener: A Successful Grower's Handbook for Small-Scale Organic Farming.''

An educational film called The Market Gardener's Toolkit, in which Fortier describes the tools and techniques used on his farm was released in 2016. Provided by Wikipedia
