Abby Pollen

Abby spends her free time exploring her home turf of British Columbia’s west coast and snacking on all the wild edibles there from blackberries to maple tree blossoms. She’s a certified word nerd with a French degree, a passion for scrabble, and a repertoire of terrible puns. Some day Abby hopes to have a proper farm, but for now she’s making do with a back yard garden. She’s currently living a vegetarian life, but if the deer get in the garden and eat the veggies again, venison is definitely coming back on the menu.
