About Mary Jane Duford
Welcome to my personal space on the web! I’m Mary Jane Duford, a passionate content creator, entrepreneur, and professional engineer based in British Columbia, Canada. My journey is a blend of creativity, engineering precision, and a deep love for the natural world.
My current endeavors
Since 2015, I have been the driving force behind Home for the Harvest, a platform for those who love growing plants. As a content creator and blogger, I share insights, tips, and inspirations for others who cherish the art of nurturing their homes and gardens.
In 2021, I founded Duford Digital Inc., channeling my expertise into helping businesses thrive in the digital space. This venture reflects my commitment to innovation and excellence in digital strategies.
My technical backbone
Prior to my digital and content creation ventures, I honed my technical skills on the Geotechnical Engineering team at Shell and in roles at Delta C Technologies. My time working in energy production was integral in shaping my analytical approach and problem-solving skills.
My academic background is rooted in civil engineering, and I hold a Bachelor of Applied Science in Civil Engineering from The University of British Columbia (2012). I’m also a proud holder of the P.Eng. (Professional Engineer) designation from Engineers and Geoscientists BC. In addition to my engineering certifications, I hold a Permaculture Design Certificate and a Master Gardener Certificate.
Through Duford Digital, I strive to merge my technical acumen with my creative passions, providing a unique perspective to digital audiences. My goal is to empower, educate, and inspire, whether it’s through a blog post about nurturing your garden or a digital strategy to grow your business.
Join me on this journey as I continue to explore the intersection of technology, creativity, and the simple joys of home life.
