Daniel - also known as Ocean - began his urban gardening hobby in 2016 when Shawn coached him on creating his own urban farm. After years of practice, Ocean has developed into a self-proclaimed pepper expert. His urban farm focuses primarily on different varieties of hot peppers, which he uses for oils, sauces and dry rubs.
Ocean's passion for gardening and sustainable living has been inspired by Stephen Brooks, the Founder of a permaculture farm and education centre called Puntamona.org.
Ocean's family has been involved in the fresh produce industry since the 1930's in Kensington market. Ocean also uses his urban farm as a teaching tool for his three young boys, who all love to get involved in the process.
