Spruce Cottage Farm is located at various spots throughout Haines Junction, Yukon, gateway to the magnificent Kluane country, in the traditional territory of the Champagne and Aishihik First Nations. Jolene Billwiller grows vegetable, flower and herb starts for sale as well as produce for herself and for market. She also saves seeds, grows cut and dried flowers and culinary and medicinal herbs, as well as hosting seasonal workshops and providing organic gardening education.
Jolene has been growing plants and vegetables for twenty years. Since 2009, Jolene has called Haines Junction home and she looks forward to the joys and challenges of growing food in the Yukon every year.
Jolene is really pleased to be growing vegetables for the From the Ground Up Fundraising Program. A great way to teach kids where their vegetables come from and a win-win for schools and local farmers, as well as the community members who support the fundraising program!
