Colin Samuels

Colin Samuels grew up on the farm where for the past several years he has been developing Jambican Studio Gardens. Dedicated to sustaining the availability of fresh, healthy produce and practicing proper stewardship of the land, he currently cultivates four acres of chemical-free flower and vegetable gardens, maintains a 20-acre woodlot and is developing plans for a greenhouse. Experimentation with growing tropicals such as cho-cho, sorrell, okra and hot peppers is a future goal.

Using mechanical cultivation, companion planting, cover crops/green manures biodiversity and habitat control for pest, weed and fertility management results in healthy local produce that Colin believes people desire and deserve. As well, he gratefully embraces the lifestyle that his occupation enables him to pursue.
