New Farm Folk

Hi, Acadia Community Farm !

I’m writing this short note in order to introduce you all to the NEW email writers (and coordinators of the garden) — and, because it’s my last chance to write to you all at once.  Alex, Stefan and I have officially left Wolfville (for now) and so, it’s time for new folks to take over on the gardening front from us.  These people are Heather, Dewey, Brynne, Tyler, as well as a bunch of others. Read on for my attempt at their biographies… (as I know/recall them!)

Many of you know Heather MacArthur – she had a plot at the garden this past summer. She’s a New Minas native who spent some time away from the valley, getting educated in Peterborough Ontario and has now returned, much to Wolfville’s good fortune.  Heather plans on staying in Wolfville for the foreseeable future and as such, is a wonderful asset to the project.  Send her a note at

Brynne Sinclair-Waters is a 5th year Political Science major at Acadia who began helping the Farm in a serious way this past fall, when she managed to get loads of students involved in the project and helped to organize the ‘Farm in Education’ forum. She’s especially interested in improving connections between the Farm and the student body. If you have ideas…

Dewey Dunnington is a 3rd year Environmental Science major who is a long-time shoveler at the garden, but a recently converted grant-writer and fundraiser. Stay tuned for word about several wintertime fundraisers that Dewey (and others) are putting together… Get in touch with him if you have fundraising ideas (or if you like bluegrass music) –

Tyler Boucher’s a Mainer with an independent Environmental Science project to do this upcoming semester, which he intends to use as an opportunity to do some research that could benefit the farm. Stay tuned for more on what he’ll come up with…  and reach him, if you’d like to, at

So, that’s all you’ll hear from me.  I look forward to visiting Wolfville next summer to see and taste what’s growing!  Thank you for the opportunity to work alongside you all these past two summers. It’s been a wonderful adventure.

Happy new year!
