I began farming in 2008 with the goal of providing Winnipegers with nutritious and locally grown food while minimizing the environmental impact of farming. In 2009 I interned on a biodynamic farm in Ontario where I toured many organic farms and learned about different organic growing methods. In 2010 I started my own farm (the name gives it away). My first year I worked alone, but things have grown since then and there are now 4 of us working on the farm in the summer.
I have enjoyed the last few summers working in nature on projects aimed at bringing about greater harmony with each other and our environment. I am super excited to be spending the summer watching plants grow, being outdoors in the elements, sharing tasty food with Winnipegers, getting a serious physical workout and tan, living and growing a vision of creative sustainability with others and consciously creating the kind of world I’d like to live in.
