Place of Residence: Maple Ridge, British Columbia, Canada
Occupation: Jennifer is a brand new farmer desperate to stop the destruction of farmland in her neighbourhood. She is determined to prove that even disused, marginal land can be incredibly productive and vital.
Background: Raised in suburbia, Jennifer had little contact with anything resembling a farm, but nevertheless fostered a strong love of nature and animals. After nearly 20 years in a well paid, but dead-end job, she finally decided to pursue her dream of local, sustainable agriculture.
Current Projects: Lambing is underway at Horse Drawn Farms. A new, mobile 30-hen coop is planned for the summer, to make pasture rotation easier. Jen is particularly interested in eco-mimicry: copying the natural progression of wild grazing animals (in a wild meadowland) with domestic animals on managed pasture.
