Holly comes to farming from a background in international development and environmental education. She has worked on community development projects across Canada and abroad, and it was during her time running a school and family garden program in Honduras that she saw the potential for enhancing community through growing food.
After a few years fine-tuning her skills as an apprentice at Cropthorne Farm in Ladner, BC, she joined the Edible Garden Project, first as Farmer, now as Farm Manager. Holly believes that growing your own food is an incredibly empowering and rewarding experience, and that food growing spaces are some of the best venues for people to get engaged and involved in their community. Her favourite veggie is garlic!
