January 27: Beatrice Chan “Summer Roads Flower Company; The Journey”

Beatrice Chan is the farmer and heart behind Summer Roads Flower Co. She has a love for all living things and loves living close to the land. She has a degree in Ecological Restoration which led to her starting a flower farm. She has been working in the agricultural sector for several years and has worked on several farms in the area from organic veggie farms to purebred sheep farms, agricultural not for profits organizations and in agricultural research before she started her own cut flower farm in 2018. She believes in farming in relationship with the land, plants, and animals that support her and she farms with regenerative agricultural practices to support those relationships, and to build climate change mitigation and resilience into the farm. She particularly takes an interest in healthy soil food webs which are the basis of a healthy farm and soil. Her talk will tell you the story of how she became a flower farmer and the farming journey she has been on since, and a little bit of the vision for the farm in the future.
