Marie’s horticultural passion started with working at a local garden centre in Stratford, Ontario. This led Marie to New Zealand to study and work for a year on a fruit orchard. She then enrolled and graduated from a Horticulture program through the University of Guelph.
During her studies Marie started her own landscape company and has been in business since 2003 which incorporated as Canopy Farms Ltd. in February 2019.
