Tiffany Traverse

Having grown up on her Great Grandparent's homestead, on her peoples' traditional Secwépemc territory in the Columbia Valley, Tiffany's love for growing food and stewarding the land comes as naturally as breathing. Living now in northeastern BC, she continues to foster the belief that if you care for the land, it will give back to you in droves. The privilege of arable land access and a passion for community-led research have given Tiffany the ability to participate in variety trials through CANOVI and Seed Savers Exchange, as well as the Seed Seva Seasonal Mentorship program with Rowen White. Her path has also led her to help conduct a large grow-out and stewardship of rare Indigenous seed under the mentorship of Métis Seedkeeper Caroline Chartrand. Tiffany's passion for feeding people, and firm belief in the right to healthy foods for all, is only increasing. She is excited to take on such projects as experimental plant breeding to adapt nutrient-dense cultivars to our changing climate and extending food storability. With her role as a volunteer Advisory Council Member with The Community Seed Network, her hope is to create better access to resources and increase our collective seed and food security.
