Our Grower Educators

Jenny Szulc  - DCH, BA, B.Ed

Jenny is the Executive Director for Growing Young Farmers and also a BC Certified Teacher. Jenny teaches at a number of the schools in Saanich. She is passionate about kids eating healthy food, and believes that this is best learned by connecting them with the earth and growing food themselves. She is a mom of two kids aged 12 & 15, and has been working to transform her ornamental garden into her own food forest - complete with foraging backyard chickens!

"I love good food, being physically active, learning new things and kids! Being a Grower Educator allows me to do all these things - be outside in the garden with children growing and eating fresh produce and having fun. Seeing the smiles on the children’s faces when they are in the garden, and helping to make a difference in their lives at a young age, doesn’t get any better than that! With the Government House as my backdrop for the children’s garden, it makes the job that much more special with stunning views and beautiful gardens. A very rewarding experience!"
