My name is Amy. I am a passionate food grower, harvester and preserver living in Edmonton, Alberta. I love learning and trying out new methods of preserving fresh food so that I can enjoy the harvest year round. This is important to me from a sustainability, local living, and health perspective. I grew up in a small town in Ontario. My parents taught me the joys of growing and foraging for your own food. We had honey bees, tapped trees, rescued apples from the abandoned orchard next door, and grew a big garden! Now, I'm learning the art of growing and preserving food in an urban environment. I'm the Volunteer Director of Operation Fruit Rescue Edmonton (OFRE), a food security advocate and am currently working on my Food Security certificate from Ryerson University.
