Episode 14

Remembering Linda Edwards

In November of 2020, we lost someone who made many meaningful contributions to the organic farming movement in British Columbia and Canada, and who played a very important role in the reduction of pesticide use on countless acres of tree fruit in BC and beyond. I'm talking about Linda Edwards, who died suddenly at the age of 77 the day after she contributed to an episode in this podcast series. Linda was many things. A farmer. An entomologist. A teacher. A writer. She is a past president of the Certified Organic Associations of BC, and a recipient of its Brad Reid Award for her contributions to BC's organic sector. And for years, she contributed to the development and evolution of Canada's organic standards. 

In this episode, we remember Linda Edwards.
