Perennial Gardener, Fiddlehead Nursery
Fiddlehead Nursery – Edible Landscapes for All!
Ben Caesar was born and raised in Elmira, Ontario. He learned of permaculture and forest gardening through a friend, and got hooked immediately. He has been experimenting with perennial edibles for many years, and opened Fiddlehead Nursery in 2012. He manages (and eats from) an ever-expanding demonstration garden to showcase some of the best plants for edible landscapes. He’s always trying out new edible plants, and is passionate about the idea of gardens that mimic the diversity and structure of natural ecosystems as they build soil and produce food.
In the winter, Ben makes his living as a carpenter. When he’s not building things or growing plants, he can be found walking in the woods or paddling local rivers. He lives near Kimberley with his partner and daughter.
