Soil Research Assistant at Klondike Valley Nursery in Dawson City, Yukon

Kristen Robinson, UBC Forestry Co-op student, is standing in the nursery holding berries and smiling.

During this work term I have been working as an intern at Klondike Valley Nursery. So far this term I have completed many different tasks, from transplanting plants, fertilizing fruit bushes, watering plants and grafting apple trees. On top of working at the nursery, we are part of a study that is trying to better understand human relationships and connections with soil. I am excited to move into the next stage of projects which includes harvesting and picking berries from all the plants I have watched grow over the last couple months. Overall, throughout this Co-op term I have better developed my plant identification skills, understanding of plant and soil biology and allowed me to see new parts of the Yukon!
