Robert Brown has been a resident of Brandon for nearly 12 years after moving to the “Big” city to attend Assiniboine Community College in the Agri-Business program. After graduating from the Agri-Business program in 2010 he has held positions with several companies in Brandon, in addition to running his own small painting business.
Robert has always had an interest in environmental stewardship. The interest came early while growing up on his family’s small mixed farm in Southern Manitoba. Robert loves the land and has spent countless hours fishing, hunting, and hiking through Pembina Valley in his youth.
Robert was also actively involved in his local 4-H Beef club, holding the position of Treasurer for a number of those years. Robert’s time in the 4-H program taught him that the true spirit of leadership is to be in the service of others — a value that was reflected in his time serving with his home town’s volunteer fire department.
While attending Nellie McClung Highschool, Robert was a dedicated member of his school’s Envirothon program, as well as the school choir and various sports teams. The Envirothon program allowed him to delve deeper into the issues surrounding the environment.
Robert continues to enjoy an active lifestyle through hiking, mountain biking, and teaching Karate. He hopes to aid in creating a sustainable future where he can share these passions with his daughter.
Robert is passionate about leaving the environment in a better state than he left it. He wishes to create a sustainable future for our community, our province, and the world.
