Darwin B.

Growing

“There is no better feeling than to see good results after a lot of hard work.”

Darwin B., originally from Honduras, was driven from a young age to get a good education, find a meaningful job, and make a difference in people’s lives. As a Grower Assistant at NatureFresh™, Darwin is given the opportunity to positively impact a lot of people every single day!

For Darwin, using his knowledge and experience to grow healthy and safe food for people is one of the most rewarding parts of his job: “I enjoy doing any activity that impacts a lot of people in a positive way. Working in the greenhouse industry allows me to use my knowledge and experience to provide people with the best food while using cutting-edge technology and systems.”

A hot summer in 2018 meant greater challenges with maintaining our crops and delivering great food to our customers – but Darwin knew it was possible: “Even though it was a season of challenges, we were able to handle the situation accordingly and deliver an upstanding yield. And there is no better feeling than to see good results!”

Darwin doesn’t just work with his hands in the crop – he is also a fan of woodworking and completing renovations at his home. His latest project? A beautiful handmade Andirondack chair (or, as many Canadians call it, a Muskoka chair)!

When visiting one of our Bell Pepper ranges, you will likely find Darwin checking on the crops he cares for, making sure they are continuing to produce the best fruit in our region. He is one of the #GrowToPeople!
