Em Bellinger

Communications and Engagement Coordinator

Em is very excited to have joined the CRFAIR team this spring (2018).

Em is a settler on Lekwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ territories and feels privileged to work, (un)learn and build community on these lands. She moved here in 2012 to study Geography and Environmental Studies at the University of Victoria. During her studies she became interested in food sovereignty and food systems and jumped at the opportunity to get her hands dirty with a role at the Compost Education Centre that enriched her classroom learning. She has also spent time with her hands in the soil working at a few local community gardens and is excited to continue pursuing her love for community engagement, event planning and good food with her new role on the CRFAIR team.

Em looks forward to collaborating with diverse community organizations, farms, and other food advocates in the Capital Region!
