In 2009 I became a beekeeper! I am following in the footsteps of my grandfather who tended bees in Alberta. It has been exciting to learn about and tend to our approx. 10, 000 new friends! Steve and I are planning to add another hive to our happy home in the spring.I also love spending time in our garden and last year we expanded it to our front yard.
Before moving to Vancouver 4 years ago, I was living in Toronto while pursuing a PhD degree in Environmental Education (my thesis is entitled: Enveloped by Ocean Life: Experiences of SCUBA Diving). Soon after moving to Vancouver I became involved in a Community Climate Change Cafe initiative where I met Ross who inspired me to become involved in Village Vancouver (VV). Through VV I have met many wonderful people who continue to teach me about creating resilient communities and I look forward to meeting you too! Two years ago I made a move to the wonderful Main street area with Steve and Loki (our dog). I'm excited about meeting others living near us (and afar) who are striving to tread lightly on the earth and are interested in creating a more resilient, cooperative, and closer knit community - together.
