An important part of our whole farm vision includes the coming together of farming practices with teaching and research. We go about this in many different ways, but all of it aimed at ‘learning by doing’. ….edits and transition here that is more inclusive of JGK interests and strengths….our connections with the community of experienced growers and to contributing to the community of new farmers, we regularly participate in farming education and ongoing ‘learning by doing’ events. Contact us if you are a regional organization interested in soil health workshops or other ways of actively building capacity in the Islands and southwestern B.C. food systems. [Jana to work on this]
