Until recently, I lived on a small mixed farm on the west coast of British Columbia in a remote First Nations village town. In 2008, I quit my job, returned to the farm and committed to a project that I have dreamed of attempting for several years. That is, to provide all the food we will eat for a year.
This will entail growing vegetables, raising meat animals, fishing, and learning to hunt. At the time, I did not have an agricultural background, but knew that farming is in my blood. It is almost all I can think about. If I won the lottery, I would buy a large farm or ranch and spend the rest of my life spending the money farming!
In June 2011, the book that I wrote about the experience was published by Caitlin Press. It is called Chicken Poop For The Soul: in search of food. sovereignty.
I have a Master's Degree in Social Science with a background in Community Development. I call myself a 'Food Provisionist'. I now live in Grande Prairie, Alberta.
