Green Fire Farm is a family owned and operated farm and farming education centre in the Cowichan Valley, British Columbia.

Our current leadership team, a.k.a. the head, heart, and hands of the farm are:

DeLisa Lewis 

DeLisa holds a PhD in soils and agroecology, and has close to two decades of experience managing certified organic mixed vegetable production systems. She was lead instructor for the UBC Farm Practicum in Sustainable Agriculture from 2011-2014, and her teaching, research, and consulting continue with focus areas in soil nutrient management, farm planning, and new farmer training. Her volunteer service to the community of growers in British Columbia includes membership on the COABC accreditation board and North Cowichan Agriculture Advisory Committee.

 

Jana Kotaska

New to the world of farming, Jana has a background in ecology, environmental science, and planning. She recently finished a PhD focused on reconciliation and relationships between First Nations and the BC government. She is a consultant working mainly for Coastal First Nations – Great Bear Initiative, but in her “spare” time she participates as a partner in the farm. 

 

We are a certified organic farm and members of the Island Organic Producers Association . Local to our valley, we are members of the Cowichan Agricultural Society
