This story describes my personal journey from a tiny village in Nicaragua to present day rural Alberta. It is a journey towards building community trust and regaining control of the issues facing agricultural communities across Alberta. Cows and Fish works with communities by first building trust and ecological literacy along the path to landscape health. However, this pathway is not set in stone as we continue to benefit from the wisdom of people who understand the landscape better than anyone – landowners and producers.

“I will never marry a farmer”. At least that is what Liz told herself before she met Jeff. Liz tells her story of how she has grown to love raising her family on the farm and made just enough adjustments to fit in perfectly. This is a funny story that warms your heart.
