Alberta Canola Welcomes
New Public Engagement Coordinator – Tanya Pidsadowski
As both a Registered Dietitian and a farmer herself, Tanya Pidsadowski’s experience and education make her the ideal person to lead Alberta Canola’s efforts in public engagement. This new role will see Tanya engage a diversity of audiences, educating and interacting about canola facts, the farmers who grow it, canola’s unique place in agriculture, and the role it has in a healthy diet.
Pidsadowski has a B.Sc. in Foods and Nutrition from the University of Alberta, and began her career as a Registered Dietitian with Alberta Health. Relevant to agriculture, she has experience in the canola seed sector as a representative for Pioneer seeds whilst she and her husband ran the family farm near Westlock. While scouting fields with her customers and hosting field tours, Tanya discovered her talents in promoting agriculture and the benefits of the crops farmers grow. For the last few years, she has been one of our valued contractors promoting canola to teachers, students and the general public at events such as Aggie Days and the Calgary Stampede.
Tanya’s combination of experience on farm, in health care, and in the agricultural industry will serve her and Alberta’s canola farmers well in this new role.
