Daria is originally from Italy and has lived on Salt Spring for 25 years. She has owned and operated several agricultural businesses and has been an organic inspector since almost the beginning of the organic movement in BC. The CSA model has been a dream for a while, and after a few years of developing the soil at 190 Jasper, the time felt right to open the farm and share the abundance with the community.
Wiet moved to Salt Spring from Holland 10 years ago. Since then she has been growing at home as well as professionally. Wiet has enjoyed taking on the challenge of running the CSA program with her friend Daria!
Ronald is from Brazil and this is his fifth season at the Quarry Farm. Since 2020 he has been involved with the production of sourdough bread and jar products. He is also in charge of infrastructure in the gardens, like irrigation and greenhouses, that are so crucial to the success of the vegetable program.
Brit is the crew's true Salt Springer. She officially joined the Quarry Farm team with the 2020 winter veggie box and since 2021 she has also been our administrator, registrar and newsletter writer.
Wera and Deb are the Chorus Frog nursery magic hands, seeding and tending to the baby plants until they are strong enough to thrive in your gardens. They learned all they could from Rod last year to continue his legacy and surprise you with their own gifts in the coming seasons
Ted is the builder and engineer behind our systems: the packing shed, the cooler and the soon to be root cellar. He is also involved with the vineyard and the processing of fruit juices.
