Editor’s note: If you haven’t met “Flo” yet, this superhero is visiting Cowichan communities this summer, helping us face down a severe drought and water restrictions. Cowichan Watershed Board summer student Lauren Frost reports in weekly as Flo visits local watershed heroes to learn more about their work (and snap a selfie)!
Name: Adrian Southern
Occupation: Owner/Founder, Raincoast Aquaponics
Why Flo likes him/her: Water Conservation Hero
Flo: Hi Adrian. Let’s start with how long you have lived in Cowichan Region.
Adrian: I grew up in Cowichan Bay, and recently moved back here from Nanaimo.
Flo: You stand out as a friend of the watershed because of the efforts you make to save water. Thank you for that! What inspired you to start an aquaponic farm?
