All About Raspberries – with Kayla Brouwer

Kayla Brouwer will be the guest speaker at the Comox Valley Horticultural Society meeting on February 27. Kayla’s presentation will cover three topics; growing raspberries in the Pacific Northwest climate, the latest research on raspberries and lastly, blueberry pollination and current research.

Kayla was born and raised in Northern Colorado. She obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Biology at Dordt University and it was here that she found her passion for agriculture and ecology.

In 2019, Kayla moved to Washington and began working in the raspberry industry helping to produce tissue culture grade raspberry plants for growers in the Pacific NW and Southern BC.

Kayla is completing her Master of Science program at Washington State University and her research focuses on the effects of honey bee colony placement on blueberry pollination and pesticide exposure.
