New Gleaning Coordinator

fullsizeoutput_119e Hello LAFS community! I am Wren Kerslake, I have been hired for the summer to be the new Gleaning Program Coordinator for the Lillooet Agriculture and Food Society. Although I grew up in Lillooet, I have been away for the last two years living in Victoria to finish high school.  I am very happy to be back in my home town, and I look forward to reconnecting with the people of Lillooet and meeting the new-comers. While I finished high school, I gained experience working with non-profit organizations in Victoria as a youth leader.  I was inspired by the many different initiatives I experienced during my time away and I am excited to become a part of one in my own community. I grew up on a farm outside Lillooet, and spent a large part of my life weeding, picking fruit, and running around the Farmer’s Market.  I have always loved the tradition of sharing food with friends and neighbours. I look forward to developing a system for continuing this wonderful practice. I am happy to be back home for the summer and working in a job to help the lovely community of Lillooet grow and prosper. To contact Wren, you can reach her on the Gleaning for Life Facebook group or at
