“Thank you for welcoming me into your home here in the Comox Valley for the past four months…. Innisfree has been the most memorable and transformative experience in my life. I have learned so much more than how to farm and gown so much as a human being. I have planted many seeds, not only to grow food, but seeds of inspiration in my heart and mind….” – 2020 Apprentice
