Merrissa KarmarkMember at Large
Merrissa Karmark lives in the prairie parkland, where she works as a substitute teacher for Horizon School Division. In the summer months, she plans and plants gardens with family and friends here at home. In the winter, she and her husband head to Nicaragua where they work with a local non-profit in designing school permaculture gardens that celebrate connections between historical traditions and modern techniques. She is currently pursuing a deeper understanding of how gardens and agriculture can be forces for cultural, physical, and environmental healing in our rural communities here in Saskatchewan.
