|About the Book|
Fern Walker is a native of Nova Scotia who, in her words, grew up immersed in wild blueberries! Her father, Carvell Stonehouse, was involved in that industry for 51 years. Fern worked in the family business until moving to Kanata, Ontario, with her husband Paul and their children. From there, she continued to do promotion for the Blueberry Producers Association of Nova Scotia and the Wild Blueberry Association of North America. In 1983, she started Ferns Frozen Fruit, supplying blueberries, cranberries and raspberries to non-profit groups for fundraising. Fern is quick to point out that including these berries in our daily diet provides us with a health force of vitamins, calcium, iron, potassium and magnesium, along with the antioxidants that help fight the war against free radicals in our bodies.
