Watch, Get Gardening and Learn Together @ BPL Program Portal

Many of us have noticed in our growing areas that the weather affects our gardens and crops. We have not seen to the yields as we expected. Or, we have not noticed the same level of harvests due to improper pollination, or insect damage. And, we simply have heard the reference, ‘Climate Change’, and we wonder how that will impact us?

Drastic changes in weather have been a large discussion across the country. Whether it is drought, flooding, extreme summer heat, or ‘these strange bugs popping up that I have not seen before’, this particular topic on how climate change affects our gardens and farms is important.

Amanda Smith 

A graduate of Manitoba university in 2004, Amanda Smith walked bravely into her future with her degree in Russian Literature and Holocaust studies to become a….farmer? After a 12-year adventurous journey, Amanda is an accomplished agricultural and horticultural specialist, and gardening master in the Fraser Valley. From farm apprentice to farm owner then Master Gardener, specialty floral designer, and educator, she enjoys researching plant health, growth patterns, pests and diseases and greenhouse growing. Her true passion is teaching, from school kids through the Nature’s Classroom program to farmers in the field to ordinary citizens who want to grow their own food.  Amanda has also spent years in the garden center/ nursery field as well. 

An avid supporter of community gardens, she has managed several in Langley, including Maples Discovery Garden and the Langley Learning Farm. Now, the Agriculture Stewardship Coordinator at Langley Environmental Partners Society, she plans agricultural events and educational group workshops, school curriculum, and one-one support to the Langley community around farm and garden sustainability and food security. 

When not out in a field or yanking weeds in a community garden, you can find the native of South Western BC, at home in Abbotsford with her fur babies, Astro and Shadow.
