Carmen and Glenn are the owners of Eatmore Sprouts & Greens. They have two wonderful kids, Robin and Amanda and live a 3-minute bike ride from work!
Carmen was born in Alberta and came to the Coast with her family as a young girl in the early 1970′s. Carmen’s first job in high school was at a friend’s sprout farm. It was love at first sight. Carmen has been dedicated to local, organic food production ever since! Carmen has a dream of seeing Vancouver Island become self-sufficient and sustainable in her lifetime.
Glenn was born and raised in New Zealand. His family farmed sheep and cattle on steep hill country in the central North Island. Glenn met Carmen while on a working holiday and, after building homes in Canada for a time, they purchased Eatmore Sprouts.
Glenn’s creativity and his background in construction and farming make him our perfect Maintenance Manager and Big-Picture-Long-Term-Development Guy. When not designing ingenious new ways to grow sprouts, you will find Glenn either on his bicycle in the trails or on his yoga mat.
Alison Gillard is a valued member of our team. She keeps the managers and sprouts on track and is the voice of Eatmore. She is the first person you will meet when you call or visit us, whether you are placing an order or making an inquiry, Alison will point you in the right direction.
The Garden Team is bringing life to our market garden. See you at the Farmer’s Market this winter.
Eatmore Staff, You Grow Good Sprouts!
We respectfully acknowledge that we work and live on the Unceded traditional territory of the K’òmoks First Nation
