“I started volunteering for the Sharing Farm because I believe it has immense potential as a place where people can receive hands-on education, engage in community projects, and where ideas about biodiversity and food-security can converge.

This year along with Leslie and Kareno, I am working on establishing cut-flower beds to not only generate income for the farm but provide pollen for the bees and seeds for the birds; I am creating a botanical inspired garden around the main house at The Sharing Farm where I am highlighting native Canadian and pollen-rich plants. I am also working on another program to engage queer youth, with the help of Kareno and Kimi.

Probably the biggest learning opportunity thus far has been the work I have done to develop and promote the Garden Apprenticeship Program and engage the immigrant youth in the community.”
