    Hydroponics & Hurdles: Navigating the Indoor Farming Landscape with Victoria Lee

    Hydroponics & Hurdles: Navigating the Indoor Farming Landscape with Victoria Lee

    On this week's episode of The Rural Woman Podcast™, you'll meet Victoria Lee.
    Basil Ranch has been providing fresh herbs and produce to restaurants and grocers since 1996. Victoria took over the reigns in 2015 and saw an opportunity to grow the produce we were providing using hydroponics as a solution to food security in our northern climate. Their indoor hydroponic farm ran year round in the heart of Inglewood, providing fresh greens and mushrooms to local restaurants and grocers. Basil Ranch's goal was to contribute to the city's food security by using low tech, highly sustainable hydroponic food systems.
    In November of 2023, Victoria decided to scale back to the things that are near and dear to her heart and closed down the hydroponic farm to focus on the edible flower farm located in the heart of Highfield, on a City of Calgary Urban Farm Project.

Bobby Ockerman ,

I am a Farmer.

I grew up in Ag along side my brothers and dad but never felt like I was enough of a “farmer” to hold the title even though I was actively participating alongside the men in my family doing the same tasks just not being a decision maker. I was fine holding the title “farmers daughter” checking cows, baling, cooking meals, and fixing fence but felt that I wasn’t quite a “farmer.” The stories shared gives validation and redefines what it takes to hold the title of a “farmer” and takes the shame away from not fitting in the traditional checkbox definition of being a man. I am so thankful to Katelyn and this podcast for redefining the definition of farmer and allowing me to claim my title.

A community I didn’t know I needed

I came across this podcast by accident but Katelyn had me hooked within the first episode. It is exactly what I need whenever I’m looking for motivation, positive vibes and validation for my goals. Being a farmer, homesteader, mother, wife and friend can all be challenging at times and I find that Katelyn has so many guests that can help talk me through those challenging times. I always finish her episodes feeling understood and motivated. I cannot recommend this podcast enough!

Inspiration found here!

The host of the podcast, Katelyn, has a knack for asking all the right questions that inspire meaningful and insightful conversations. Listening to each woman share their story often feels like I’m enjoying the company of a few good friends over coffee. Every episode is packed full of inspiration AND ag knowledge. It’s a podcast I recommend to all of my rural (or not) friends!
