Sarah was raised in a remote coastal community in central BC, Rivers Inlet. There was very little sunlight in the area, resulting in one of the most poorly producing greenhouses on the coast. On the rare occasion a freight boat came through to deliver groceries, she and her sisters would devour all the produce that was unloaded. A rather severe appreciation for fresh vegetables had taken root. Many years later, after attending college for a horticulture degree, Sarah began work on a farm in Victoria, and has been growing veggies ever since. The combination of working outside, the amazing mentors and colleagues, and the satisfaction of growing flavourful nutritious food, has made farming into what is going to be a lifelong passion. She is the current owner and operator of Pendleton Farm, a small, mixed-vegetable operation located in Merville.
