My name is Nicola Gunter and I am the Founder & Program Director of Goodworm Garden Programs. Through a variety of ways, I help connect people to plants. I grew up on a farm, gardening in zone 3b. I have also lived and gardened in zones 7b (Victoria, BC) and 5a (southern AB).
I am a Mother, Auntie, Organic Master Gardener, Therapeutic Horticulture Practitioner, Urban Farmer and Educator. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Social Work with an Indigenous People's Focus. As a Social Worker I do not support the colonial child welfare institution as I believe it is a continuation of the residential school genocide project.

The interconnecteness of all things is an important part of my pedagogy. I seek to help dismantle colonial narratives and structures because all things we do, including gardening, are inherently political.
I am often approached by community leagues, libraries, and schools. Let's connect! Let's grow!
