Bernadette Greene comes from a long line of growers, going back at least four generations. Her parents came from Holland to the Saanich Peninsula in 1955 to start a greenhouse operation, Welle Horticulture. Bernadette now works and lives with her husband and two daughters on the same property that her parents farmed for many years. In fact, some of the structures are salvaged from the greenhouses that used to be on the property. She grows organic vegetables (including tomatoes, peppers, garlic, onions, shallots, peas, beans, lettuce, basil and potatoes), fruits (including raspberries, blueberries, plums, apples, pears and Asian pears), and lots of cut flowers. She also propagates perennials, annuals, and starter vegetable plants, which she sells at a plant sale in the spring.
Bernadette will be bringing raspberries, strawberries, cut flowers, tomato plants and other veg. starters, some perennials, basils, garlic scapes, etc.
