Kristin Graves is a fifth-generation farmer.

In 2017, she started Fifth Gen Gardens, an Alberta-based market garden that specializes in subscription farming.

Fifth Gen Gardens started with weekly vegetable subscriptions that were meant to create a close connection between consumers and their food with transparent farming tactics.

In recent years, Kristin has expanded the business to work alongside high-end local chefs, picking up creative culinary tips with each season.

Kristin's ultimate goal is to promote locally grown food in all its glory: the good, the bad, and the ugly. In doing so, she is committed to sharing unique and versatile ways to extend the garden harvest and help reduce the amount of food waste that ends up in landfills.

Kristin hopes to share her love of growing and inspire gardeners to make small changes that will greatly impact the health of the land.
