Andrew visits Mark and Carol in Courtenay, BC. They share their ten year gardening journey with us, including what they have done to mitigate some of the challenges they have faced with tree roots, keeping their soil full of nutrients in a heavy rainfall region, and automating their irrigation to reduce their time commitment in the summer months.

Andrew Couzens is a software engineer turned soil scientist.

A life long sufferer with inflammatory bowel disease, he was motivated to enter the agricultural space in an effort to “be the change” he believed was necessary to heal his own body.

Healthy plants come from healthy soil, and healthy soil comes from working with nature, not against it.

Leveraging his knowledge and experience in software engineering, he started Terra Flora Organics with a goal of helping conventional growers move from unsustainable practices that destroy soil and negatively affect the health of people and the planet, to regenerative practices that allow intensive farming whilst building soil and healing our minds and our bodies.
