Overview

I grew up in the country on a "hobby farm", aka we didn't sell our produce but grew some of our own food, and owned a few animals for our own enjoyment. My plan is to start growing herbs and sell them to local health food shops and herbal tea shops, as well as to sell vegetables and berries at farmer's markets in Ottawa. I also make natural hand lotion that I plan to sell at the markets.

Experience

I have a good knowledge of varied medicinal herbs and their purposes, and also have some experience with technology/social media that I will use to advertise what I'm selling.
