“I wanted to help provide fresh produce for families like mine!”
A few months before Peter W. moved from Texas to Canada in 2015, he had a severe accident; after that, the doctors believed he would never walk again. Three years later, Peter started working at Nature Fresh Farms in Leamington, ON as a Greenhouse Supervisor – and he now walks an average of twenty thousand steps a day!
Peter loves working within the greenhouse culture: “I chose agriculture because it was the right fit for me. We are lucky to grow vegetables in a safe and healthy indoor environment. I hope that my focus on work allows us to continue to expand and grow great produce!”
Our newest greenhouse in Leamington became Peter’s home base once initial planting started: “I recently began working at our new greenhouse in Leamington and I am VERY excited to help operate this new facility. I really enjoy working with all the Specialty Tomatoes that we will be growing in this new greenhouse. I can’t wait to see the operation at work!”
With his job at Nature Fresh Farms, a family, and an embroidery business he runs out of his home, Peter has no trouble staying busy! Through the aches and pains he still experiences, Peter is motivated to live a healthy, happy, and fulfilling life.
Greenhouse Supervisors are an essential part of our team – Peter works to ensure that our plants stay healthy, our Crop Workers know what is expected of them during each shift, and the greenhouse is well-maintained. Peter is one of our #GrowToPeople!
