Katie Selbee – 2013 Graduate of the UBC Farm Practicum
After completing the practicum in 2013, Katie went on to do a year of mixed-vegetable CSA farming at Farmers on 57th, as well as an orchard internship at UBC Farm.
Katie has since moved to Pender Island, where she started Twin Island Cider, a farm-based cidery, with a fellow farm worker she met during her time at the UBC Farm.
“I juggle many roles on an everyday basis from organic orchard management to cider making, communications to retail sales.” Says Katie. “The skills and knowledge I learned through the practicum (and the community I found there!) are definitely a part of my day to day.”
