February 6th 2020 meeting will feature Fiona McQuillan

Fiona and her husband Jens started Fireweed Farmstead 3 and a half years ago after moving to Merville from Maple Ridge. Like many new farmers, their path to farming has not been a straight line! Fiona is a geologist and graphic designer, Jens a mechanic and engineer. The factors that brought them to farming was a desire to grow good food, Fiona having a green thumb, both of them wanting to work for themselves in a business both of their backgrounds could contribute too, and raising kids in a farm setting. The farm they have developed consists of greenhouses, farmstand, outdoor veg production, chickens and pigs along with wildling children and naughty ducks.
