hi from the wet - er, west - coast of Canada!

Hi, my name is Sarah and I live in Victoria, BC - a lovely place on the southern tip of Vancouver Island. The climate here is well-suited to year-round gardening... I don't have much space but I grow what I can. We share our backyard with our landlords and they have chickens, which is fun. I do some foraging - nettles and berries, and I fish and plan to hunt (pending various licenses I need to complete...) I grew up in a foraging, gardening, fishing and hunting family in the Yukon.

Looking forward to browsing the forums frequently for ideas, and meeting everyone! Anyone else from BC on here?

Hi there and welcome :wave:
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!
