Heather Pritchard is committed to passing on the skills, land, partnerships, sustainable practices and biodiverse seeds to the next generation of farmers in BC.
She has been pioneer in promoting different forms of land tenure that will allow people who want to farm to have access to land in the future.
Heather is a founding member of FarmFolk CityFolk, and has served as the organization’s Executive Director and Farm Program Manager, and is now on contract to develop a Foodland Trust Cooperative.
In her work and activism, Heather has worked extensively on connecting local farmers and consumers, and on local food supply micro-lending, young farmer training, local organic seed security, developing and supporting community and cooperative farms and the marketing of organic seasonal salad mix.
She is a co-founder/farmer with Glorious Organics Co-op in the Fraser Valley and a resident member of Fraser Common Farm Cooperative, a community farm in Township of Langley, BC where she has been farming since 1985.
One of the easiest ways to leave a legacy is through your will. Take our short Will Quiz as a first step.
Stewardship is about taking responsibility to promote, monitor, conserve and restore ecosystems for current and future generations of all species.
There are three types of environmental stewards:
1. Doers help out by taking action on the ground.
2. Donors help by donating money, land or other resources.
3. Practitioners work to steer agencies, scientists, stakeholder groups or other groups toward a stewardship outcome.
