Caroline Gosselin, Ph.D, Founder and director, Ferme Héritage Miner
A doctor of Physiology-Endocrinology and enthusiastic mother of five children, Caroline Gosselin was raised in Granby on the outskirts of the Miner Farm and is deeply attached to this part of the country. Dr Gosselin is founder and director of the Ferme Héritage Miner, a non profit organization whose mission is to protect and showcase the natural, cultural and historic heritage of the Miner farm and promote urban agriculture by providing discovery activities and participating in educational and conservation programs.
Dr Gosselin believes a person’s health and welfare is closely linked to regular contact with nature. In starting up the Ferme Héritage Miner project, she is fulfilling a dream of providing the public with a green oasis, mere steps from the downtown core, a place where it’s great to be in touch with the animals, the land and our history.
In 2011, the farm received the Richard Evans award from the Quebec Anglophone Heritage Network honoring ‘outstanding long-term contribution by a group or organization of volunteers to the preservation and promotion of Anglophone heritage in the province of Quebec.’
When she’s not in front of her computer planning the project’s orientation and development, Dr Gosselin can be found in the farm’s gardens.
