Thunder Bay, ONT Canada
Jodi was born and raised in Thunder Bay, Ontario, and was originally educated as a high school English teacher. After teaching in Alberta and then in Cambridge, England, she and her husband, Kevin, decided to settle down on the family’s farm located in the beautiful Slate River Valley. Her career as a teacher soon faded into the past as she took up her pitchfork as a full-time farmer’s wife. For ten years now, she and Kevin have been pursuing not only their passion for growing flowers, fruits and vegetables in a sustainable manner, but also promoting local agriculture in an effort to bring community attention to the importance of good food choices and a strong, healthy, sustainable food system.
