Team YukonGrow is growing! We are thrilled to have Aiden McRae, Meriam Danial and Chrys Bimokono joining us this winter as Social Media Management, Digital Marketing, and Website Development Interns, respectively.
A bit about Aiden:
Aiden is most at home living in wild places. She grew up on a lush farm in Eastern Ontario where she first felt the magic of immersing her hands in the soil and growing food. Today she strives to inspire everyday people to nurture strong relationships to the Earth and to one other. Since graduating with a B.A. in English Literature from Trent University in 2016, Aiden has offered excellence in research, writing and diverse communications services for CBC Radio, For The Wild Podcast and Indigenous organizations that strive towards environmental integrity. Passionate about storytelling on behalf of the Earth, communities and the creative arts, Aiden writes powerfully about the natural world and our responsibilities to the land, water, air and the rich tapestry of life all around us. From local food systems and community leaders, to ecological restoration and radical art—she tells stories that show us blueprints for a more beautiful future.
Aiden will administer YukonGrow's social media accounts. Our social media goals are to ensure high levels of web traffic and customer engagement, build hype for YukonGrow events, and foster the development of a community of online followers and supporters.
