Jen is the head gardener at Hakai’s Calvert Island Field Station. Jen doesn’t mess around when it comes to producing food for the table. She’s shown here with a modest size red cabbage she’s wrestled into submission.

It’s not all about utilitarian production for Jen. She also brightens up the place with outrageous displays of flowers. You’d be wise to give those flower boxes a wide berth. The nasturtiums have been known spring out and grab the unwary passerby.
