Léona is the eldest of five daughters raised on their family farm in northeastern Alberta near St.Paul. At one point Dargis Seed & Feed Ltd. owned and fed 4,000 head of cattle all while managing over 7,000 acres of land, both in pasture and crop. Together they learned the values of hard work, perseverance and gratitude from their parents the late Jean & Joanne Dargis. Léona graduated from Olds College with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Agribusiness and in 2011 was awarded a Canadian Nuffield Scholarship. This enabled her to study succession planning around the world. As a new resident of the Yukon Territory, Léona embarks on a new farming adventure. She strives to breakdown the barriers within Canada’s agricultural industry and is a proud Agvocate. She will share her global stories that exemplify how to take unimaginable change, adapt to it and succeed.
