"My roots are woven in my love of agriculture and I am grateful that my “job” is really just an extension of my passion. I want all kids to have these meaningful experiences with food so they can understand, appreciate and respect agriculture and its importance locally and globally."

Brit knows our world needs informed, engaged and collaborative leaders working towards healthy communities - and that gardens are an ideal place to grow such leaders! She has worked with diverse communities, including students, youth, adults and residents of the correction system, in the areas of food security, sustainable agriculture, advocacy, and skills development. With a community development background and a range of project and program management experience, her approach to community development is rooted in mobilizing skills, improving networks, thinking differently about problems, and using community assets in new ways.
Brit is passionate about communicating the relationships between food, environment, agriculture and health, and is thrilled with the country’s growing recognition that food and farming practices lie at the heart of our most engaging educational opportunities.
Brit feels fortunate to live surrounded by the beauty of the prairie and South Saskatchewan River valley and can often be found exploring natural areas across the province.
