Biography

Brendon Anthony began teaching at Biola University in the fall of 2017. He graduated with his Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science from Biola University in 2015 and his Master of Science in Horticulture from Washington State University (WSU) in 2017. His research at WSU consisted of fruit tree physiology, orchard management, food science and sustainable agriculture. Anthony runs classes and programs for students up at the Biola Organic Garden. Anthony loves the outdoors and camping with his pet husky. He has worked on multiple farms, and he cares deeply about the state of the environment and how we can be better stewards of it.

Anthony also co-founded and currently runs an international agricultural development non-profit, called Harvest Craft. Harvest Craft has done work in Mexico, Cambodia, Kenya, Uganda and Haiti, where the Haiti Center for Agroecology was founded. He continues to travel and consult on sustainable agricultural systems for orphanages, rehabilitation centers for human trafficked victims, churches, schools and community centers. The focus of the organization is to bring about social justice, economic development and environmental restoration in these countries.
