Aira Villanueva grew up in the farming community of Alcala, Pangasinan, Philippines where her grandfather taught her to graft trees and her grandmother would take her foraging for mushrooms. This close proximity and engagement with nature planted seeds of curiosity and a love of plants. Aira is a student at the University of Winnipeg’s integrated education program majoring in biology and minoring in chemistry, Site Coordinator for UWinnipeg Lets Talk Science, Student Teacher at Maples Met School, Founder of E-Waste Manitoba, and Floral Designer/Owner of Fleur de Fusilero.
