To whomever reads this, hello! I am writing this post from Avondale, Nova Scotia (Mi’kma’ki territory) in Canada. I was planning on being a lot closer to Alaska this summer, in northern B.C., but alas COVID-19 altered my life, like many others. I am thrilled to be learning about how to Latin names, dissection and ID of the plants around me.
I grew up in central Canada (Saskatchewan) and spent some time in B.C., the Yukon and Eastern Europe before settling in Halifax for university. I’m in my last year of a BSc at Dalhousie University in Halifax, studying Environmental Sciences and Biology. I love to write, explore places outside and acquire skills that allow me to participate in life more self-sufficiently. This summer I am working full-time on two organic farms, spend my spare time running, hiking or swimming (with a few tosses of my fishing rod).
Look forward to getting to know all of you more!
