My work at Haliburton Community Organic Farm in beautiful Victoria, BC has evolved in interesting directions over past the nine years. After completing my studies in holistic nutrition, I established my nutritional consulting business there, thinking it would be a great fit with a certified organic farm.
Last year I began running the farm’s weekly CSA (food box) program, sharing recipes and nutritional tips with around 50 subscribers to our Spring and Summer program –now accepting 2017 subscribers 🙂
And I ran some food-related programming for last summer’s interns, including this fun fermentation workshop!
This year looks like the most exciting yet. The farm’s latest initiative is the Haliburton EcoFarm School, launching in March 2017. We’ll be training students in certified organic farming practices, biodiversity & ecosystem restoration, and– holistic nutrition! As one of the core educational leads, I will be providing nutritional coursework and food preparation workshops to a new crop of organic farmers.
Think you know someone who wants to put certified organic farming together with biodiversity and nutrition? Email the EcoFarm School for more information, or to register. We’re only taking 10 people this year, and the program will cost less than in future years, so check out our amazing program!
