She's a founding member of SPUDS that provides islanders affordable access to land for growing both organic potatoes & community. She has introduced agricultural awareness to island children & founded Club Five, a 'humane education' support group for teens, including vegan & vegetarian youth often marginalized in rural communities. She founded DIVA (Denman Island Veganiculture Association) to raise awareness of stock-free & organic growing methods & production. Her devotion to humane & ethical food choices, environmentalism & community sustainability is an inspiration.
