Karen shares her skills by volunteering on several Boards and Committees including: Sustain Ontario, Local Food Plus, Halton Peel Woodlands and Wildlife Stewardship Council and Peel Agricultural Action Working Group. Karen holds a degree in Urban Planning from the University of Waterloo.

She has a background in environmental management, focusing on community-based watershed restoration. Petra has experience in working and volunteering for local and international non-profit organisations, especially in project development, workshop organization, and fund raising.

Carol Good has lived in Caledon since 1993 and has had a community garden plot at the Albion Hills Community Farm since 2011. Carol is a professional facilitator, Gestalt psychotherapist and is also the Chair of the Bolton and District Horticultural Society.

Jason Taylor: Personal Chef, Instructor, Local food Advocate, and Paleo Diet follower. Food, cooking, health, and how they work together has become my focus. Cooking delicious food for family and friends can create wonderful memories and mark significant occasions. Eating healthy, home made food nourishes the body and soul. Showing others that cooking healthy food can be easy, taste great, and be fun is why I share my knowledge.

Steve McElroy: Steve grew up in Palgrave and still lives very close to the farm. He works for the Toronto District School Board as an Outdoor Education Specialist at the Sheldon Centre for Outdoor Education. He has spent several years on the Caledon Environmental Advisory Committee, the Board of Directors for the Council of Outdoor Educators of Ontario and a few other community committees or groups.

Volunteer opportunity! We are always looking for people to serve on our board of directors as our organization grows. We meet approximately monthly in Caledon. We welcome individuals from all backgrounds to apply. Contact info@albionhillscommunityfarm.org for more information.
