My name is Abby and I live on the South Shore of PEI. I am a Foods & Nutrition major who works summers as a farm hand on a vegetable farm. Though we are not certified organic, every effort is made to ensure that chemicals are avoided as much as possible and that sustainable options are explored and utilized, from using chickens to fertilize and control insect populations, to using water efficient watering methods.
Last semester I took an elective in Sustainable Design and Development. I am hoping that this online course will supplement what I learned and take me a few steps farther.
