Cowichan Valley Warehouse

Minto Road Farm

Courtenay, BC, Canada

My name is Zoe Norcross-Nu’u. Like so many of us who live in coastal BC, I love the cliché big trees, open ocean waves, secret river swimming holes, and getting dirty on the farm with my daughters.

I work as an engineering analyst, and my job is implementing the watershed protection plan for Comox Lake. Before moving to Vancouver Island, I was a coastal geologist on Maui. As part of my job I developed and taught a university course on sustainability-related issues and initiatives.
