Greenhouse manager (AKA head garden elf) moved to the Columbia Valley when she was 12 and has called it home since. Her children grew up here and her grandchildren are happily growing up here as well.
Her previous career path has included photography, journalism, youth work, rancher, and garden and greenhouse manager. In her volunteer life, she has been on the national youth centre board, spent nearly two decades on the Advisory Planning Commission for RDEK Area G, and has helped out with many other local charities and non-profits.
Her heart is filled to the brim to be part of Groundswell and you can find her with her hands in the dirt (transferred to her nose more often than not).
Anna has more than 20-years event management experience which will come into good use this fall in running the Apple Rescue Program. Anna has gardened in Alberta and Ontario prior to moving to the Valley full time. Her favourite method of gardening is square foot gardening. If you are curious about the square foot gardening method come on up to the greenhouse and see her bed in the community gardens. You will recognize it right away because it’s the only bed squared off!
If you can’t find Anna in the garden you will find her on the mountain! And, if you come across her in either of her happy places make sure you stop her and say hi!
