Still loving it!
It’s almost one year since Colleen George left her longtime job at T’Sou-ke Nation’s administration office to begin working with wasabi.
The last time The Sentinel saw her was in October, just after the first harvest from 15,000 plants growing in three large greenhouses. “I won’t ever go back to an office job,” she said then, and during a visit in late March, she said she’s still loving her wasabi work and learning more about the plant that produces foods, cosmetics, dietary supplements and medicines.
She said that she used to go home from work at her office job and spend time in her garden to relax. Now she’s in a garden all day. T’Sou-ke has a franchise agreement with Pacific Coast Wasabi which has greenhouses in BC, Washington and Oregon.
