About Us


JAWP farm 2015

Thanks for visiting our site!

We’re ‘Just Another Weed Patch Farm’ located on Gabriola Island, in British Columbia Canada.

Starting in April 2012 we began a 19 month agroforestry adventure to transform our 2 acre pasture into a productive demonstration site of specialty cut flowers and 250 nut trees  interspersed with happy laying hens and buzzing bees.

Our cast of human characters include two lovely senior mentoring grandparents; one strong and talented Dutch Canadian arborist; three well nourished child-gardening apprentices (and Jedis in training); and one Slovenijan Canadian farm hand (who also happens to be the florist/cook/project manager and beekeeper). We also have an assortment of snouts, beaks and stingers that call our farm home. 

We are passionate farmer-florists, nut growers and stewards of the little patch of dirt upon which we are happily enslaved.
