The people, governance practices, and partners that make the organization tick.
Kannan grew up in a farming family in southern India where life was inextricably linked with land and agricultural adages were part of everyday parlance. After an early career in technology, Kannan responded to his calling and returned to his agrarian roots. He now leads Eastie Farm, an urban farm in East Boston that fosters food security, regenerative land use, and environmental stewardship. In response to the COVID crisis, as Eastie Farm’s Executive Director, he co-created Mutual Aid Eastie, and served over 5000 meals every week during the pandemic to food-insecure families. Under his leadership, Eastie Farm built the first geo-thermally powered zero-emissions greenhouse in the region, a space for all-year growing, gathering, and education. Eastie Farm’s CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) supports small farmers in the region and serves hundreds of families in East Boston.
