Faculty: Beatrice Chan
I studied Ecological Restoration as a joint program between Fleming College and Trent University and am also studying Small Business Accounting.
I work at Farms at Work, a regional not-for-profit. I have worked on several local farms in a wide variety of contexts from vegetable farms to purebred Dorset sheep farms. This gives me a broad knowledge of how different farming systems work and the different challenges they face.
I have a keen interest in insects, as pests, beneficials, pollinators, and as livestock. On my own farm I raise mealworms as an alternative protein source for my pigs, poultry and self. My goals within farming are to create diverse systems that work both from a practical farming perspective and from an ecological perspective.
