Tricia Sedgwick is a Registered Holistic Nutritionist with a background in Environmental Studies. In 2007 she spearheaded “The World in a Garden,”  an  Urban Agriculture Project  designed to enable youth and community to experience the cultural, nutritional and environmental benefits of local, organic food systems from seed to table. Her global vision is to build gardens and connect cultures around the world through food, our one uniting thread. Tricia is also the founder of ‘Seeds of Plenty’ – the sprouted cookie company which offers organic, artisan cookies, treats and ethical gift baskets. Seeds of Plenty is built on ethical business practices and a fundraising model to give back to edible garden projects across the globe.  Each year Tricia coordinates a local farm & food tour for the BC Chef’s Association, educating young chef’s on food security issues while enjoying the many pleasures of home grown food.

In 2011-2012, she spent 2 months in West Africa, speaking to rural farmers and observing agricultural practices. Alicia plans to pursue urban and environmental studies & international development in graduate school, but is happy getting her hands in the dirt in the meantime.
