Maureen– Maureen Troesch grew up on a small farm outside the village of Edam, Saskatchewan. She spent what seemed a large portion of her childhood helping her mother tend her vast and varied garden, and at the age of 12, declared that when she grew up, she was going to move into the city and never touch dirt ever again.
She graduated from the University of Saskatchewan's College of Agriculture with a B.Sc. Ag. in horticulture in 1995. She’s been working in agricultural research on various projects since finishing school, but gardening remains her first love. Her home (and garden) are in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. So she was half right.
