About Jane Murray

I come from farming roots. I grew up on a 1500 acre farm in the high Gatineau region of Quebec north of Ottawa, Ontario. We had cows, horses and chickens and our main crop was hay. We also grew various vegetables and fruits for our own use. I have had many different jobs over the years, and have experience in a number of areas that have given me very good problem solving skills. I am blessed with good common sense, which I have found can be very helpful in difficult situations. I love people and enjoy exchanging ideas, culture and food. I have always been passionate about animals and plants and respect that we need a healthy planet in order to live a healthy life.

The ethics of permaculture fit in with my own personal ethics and when I was introduced to the concept of permaculture I wanted to learn more about it. I took the Permaculture Visions Course and then when Geoff Lawton started producing his fascinating videos I had to learn even more. He has lit a spark that will be hard to extinguish.

My husband Peter and I are currently living on a 160 acre property in the Cariboo Region of British Columbia, Canada. We raise grass fed Scottish Highland Cattle, chickens for eggs and pigs. We also have horses and did have llamas but they were taken by wolves this spring. We also have one goose. Unfortunately the gander and her five goslings were taken by either fox or coyote this spring. It is a constant battle with the wildlife, but we are in their territory. We also grow fruit and vegetables outside and have a large greenhouse. I have put in a couple of new ponds and we are lucky enough to have a spring on the property.

We would like to have a permacuture teaching centre here at the ranch. My husband has also completed two online PDC certificate courses.
