After completing a Bachelor’s degree in English Literatures and Anthropology from Mount Allison University in 2013, Bernard became apprenticed to the craft of small-scale organic farming; he has since learned to grow vegetables and chase down chickens across Canada. He is committed to the study of small, resilient, joyful community systems that promote food sovereignty and sustainability. He is a member of Tintamarre, a bilingual theatre collaborative, and has worked on- and off-stage to engage with Maritime communities on a variety of social, political, and cultural issues. In addition to his interests in climate change research, indigenous-settler relations in Canada, and ecofeminism, Bernard is the co-founder of Chez Soubry et White, a Sackville-based croissanterie, and considers himself a fairly proficient knitter.
