About Suelo & Faa
Teresa (L) and Chantelle (R) are the team that make up Suelo & Faa.
We dreamed up our mini urban flower farm, Suelo & Faa, last winter. Suelo is Spanish for soil, and faa is Cantonese for flower—our way of recognizing our backgrounds and our family roots in the Hastings-Sunrise neighbourhood.
We bring complementary skill sets to the table and neither of us would have dared start the farm without the other! Teresa recently completed a Master’s in Soil Science, and has a wealth of experience working on small-scale organic farms. Chantelle brings a mixed background of a B.Sc. in resource conservation, education, and communications experience.
Growing flowers through 2020 was a real contributor to our mental and physical health, and enabled us to spread joy by sharing flowers. We are excited to continue this on a larger scale!
