“The single greatest lesson the garden teaches is that our relationship to the planet need not be zero-sum, and that as long as the sun still shines and people still can plan and plant, think and do, we can, if we bother to try, find ways to provide for ourselves without diminishing the world. ”

― Michael Pollan

West Coast Seeds

I have been ordering seeds from this company for years!! They truly are the best. 3 Years ago I was hired to take photos on their farm in Ladner, BC and it was such a wonderful experience. Seeing how they grow, asking questions, taking photos of all the veggies grown right there. My photos even landed on their website and their catalogue. Boy, did that sure boost my confidence especially when gardening is so important to me and my family. This year the company reached out to me again and asked me to apply for their Brand Ambassador program. Normally I disregard any DM or email that states this. BUT because I freaking love gardening, of course I checked it out. SO there you have it, I was approved and have now become an ambassador for their company. I will get to test new varieties of seeds and how they grow, taste, look and smell. And I will share it all with you guys. I know this is a photography website but who am I not to share somethings like this... this is who I am besides photography PLUS I get to use these skills to take photos of my other love. The flowers, veggies and fruits I will be growing. I am so very excited to share this years gardening journey with you all along side my photography.
