Fun fact: An aspiring farmer, Michelle grew up on a century farm in Haudenosaunee traditional territory (Niagara) as a third generation farmer-settler. Her 77-year-old uncle still farms the land. Inspired by her farming roots and after too many years of living in a city, she is happy to call the traditional lands and waters of the Cowichan people home.
