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 has two decades of experience managing certified organic mixed vegetable production systems. She also holds a PhD in soils and agroecology, and teaches several undergraduate courses in sustainable agriculture and food systems at UBC during the winter months. Her teaching and research interests lie at the nexus between sustainable farming practices, soil health, and people. DeLisa's 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

Jana has a background in ecology, environmental science, and planning, and completed a PhD focused on reconciliation and relationships between First Nations and the BC government. For as long as she can remember, she wanted to live on a farm and has always been interested in growing, harvesting, and preparing food. She works as a consultant, but is shifting to spending more time working on 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
