Gillian Murphy

Gillian grew up in Toronto and thought she was a dyed-in-the-wool city folk until she tried her hand at farming through a farming internship program in Ontario and discovered a passion for growing food to sustain her community. Since then, she has worked on farms across Canada, from Nova Scotia to British Columbia, learning how to farm vegetables, fruits, flowers, and animals. As a former educator, she is always looking to use her skills to educate, empower, and inspire more folks to get their hands dirty and join in their local food systems. When she isn’t working, she is attempting new seasonal recipes, playing tennis, or trying her hardest to grow native perennial species in her very shady backyard.
