Meet Vicky Harding
In 2003 Vicky Harding was living in Fort St. John as a single parent with the cost of living outweighing her income. She wasn't happy and neither were her kids.
“I sat down one day and wrote out what I wanted out of life and what my kids needed,” she explains. “A few months later I came to Tumbler Ridge for a visit with a friend and saw the opportunities to reach my goal. I have never looked back.”
Vicky is happy to operate in a small town and says that businesses in Tumbler Ridge have a friendlier atmosphere than those in a bigger community. "There is so much community spirit here,” says Vicky. “People help each other out in Tumbler Ridge. I also love that I live in an area of complete wilderness with lots of opportunities to enjoy it.”
In her spare time, Vicky loves travelling internationally and working on her property. She is slowly but surely building her own off-the-grid retirement home using recycled materials.
The entrepreneur says she has seen many changes with the closing of the mines. When Vicky first moved to Tumbler Ridge in 2003, the town had no industry, the mines had shut down and the workers had all moved out. Housing was selling very cheap and many seniors were selling their homes in the cities and buying in Tumbler Ridge for their retirement. Since then, the mines have reopened but there are many retirees still living in town. Vicky believes that the volunteers in this strong retiree community are the foundation of what keeps Tumbler Ridge stable during the downturns.
Vicky also owns and operates Moonstone Meadows Soap.
