Cathryn (Katy) Connelly, Ph.D, MA, B.Ed, CD
Katy and husband Shawn own and operate Sea Dog Farm, an operational 5-acre farm with orchards, laying chickens, alpacas, bees, berries, cut flowers, herbs and food gardens. They sell their products at their two farm stands adjacent to Centennial Park in Saanichton BC as well at local retailers.
In 2019 Katy successfully navigated the application process for a micro cannabis cultivation license. Two years and six months after licensing (spring 2022) Sea Dog Farm’s Lemongrass pre rolls made it to both independent BC retailers and the BCCS.
Shawn and Katy did not set out to be the ninth micro in the country, the first on Vancouver Island or the first outdoor BC micro with flower listed on the BC Cannabis online store, but now that they are, they enjoy helping other farmers understand the processes and challenges of obtaining and maintaining a micro cultivation license.
