Edgars Greste, Director and Content Creator
Edgars is a filmmaking foodie. He loves feeding people healthy food and great ideas. He loves a good yarn - listening and spinning them. Edgars has created content for over 10 years working as a producer, journalist, and media educator. He is a one-man-band ready to film and photograph from the ground or up in the sky and edit it all into a neat film. As a co-founder of Grow Love Media, the most rewarding thing has been capturing on film the stories of down-to-earth farmers who are passionately committed to the land and their produce. His vision is that everyone becomes a grower so that children will understand where their food and fibre comes from.
