@ AGRICULTURE: FOOD WITHOUT BORDERS
ON MAR 11, 2017
Most often, Lydia Welsh can be found eating, preparing, or thinking about food. She is awe struck by how beautiful food can be, and dreams of connecting people to nature through appreciation for their food. Her interest in food security and food systems began after taking a course on beekeeping and becoming a hobby beekeeper. Halifax became her home after completing a bachelor of education with a focus in environmental education. Through a placement at the Dartmouth North Community Food Centre Lydia met many inspiring people who create positive change in their communities and to our food system. Since then she has connected with countless beautiful, kind, and creative people, and she looks forward to meeting many more.
