Janine G. Gibson was raised, and has lived, in Provencher for most of her life, and the last 30 years on a solar powered co-operative farm south of Steinbach. Living and working with nature has nourished her sense of responsibility to protect our health through protecting soil, water and community health infrastructure. It also inspired her to run for the Green Party of Canada as a candidate.
Janine is a life-long learner as student and teacher with the International Organic Inspectors Association, where she currently serves as a peer evaluator, trainer and International VP. She has studied psychology at the University of Winnipeg and human ecology at the University of Manitoba, where she has also been a guest lecturer.
As well as helping to build organic agriculture in Manitoba through her business Creative Health Consulting, Janine’s community service includes leadership positions on several national and provincial organic agriculture and food organizations.
A proud mother and grandmother, her emphasis on sustainable agriculture supports Green priorities, addressing many of the social, environmental and economic challenges currently faced in Provencher.
