Meet Our Team
Edible Island is staffed by a dedicated, tight-knit team of diverse professionals with many years experience across both health and retail sectors. They are all passionate about their community and offering people choices that make it easy to live more healthily and sustainably.
Steve Stewart – Owner & General Manager
Steve purchased Edible Island in 2015 and has been a changed man ever since. Steve is passionate about letting the talented people around him shine bright, and brings both care and humour to the workplace. Steve grew up in Powell River and has been in the Comox Valley since 2003. He has a BSc in forestry and is proudly the living example of not working in the field one studies. In his free (precious) time Steve likes nothing more than re-charging on the mountain bike trails in Cumberland or spending summer nights anchored at Tree Island with his family.

Megan Blair – Grocery Boss
Trained as a consultant herbalist, Megan started out in the vitamins department at Edible Island 15 years ago. Her lifelong fascination with plant medicine has only grown over time, along with her love and knowledge of organic foods and environmentally sustainable farming practices. Her favourite part of working at Edible Island? “It’s all about the community. I love helping customers find their own ways of living the simple truth that healthy food is medicine.” When she’s not at the store, you can find Megan tending to her house plants, tropical fish, flower and vegetable gardens and hanging out with her human and fur family.
Alynne Neault – Wellness Category Manager
Alynne moved to Vancouver from Manitoba in 2004. She really doesn’t miss those icy cold Manitoba winters! In 2019 Alynne made the jump to the Vancouver Island lifestyle and never looked back. She is passionate about local and ethical farming and being able to bring these values to her work in the health food industry. Prior to Edible Island, Alynne worked in purchasing for 24 years. She loves spending time outdoors, with her adorable grand-doggy Eddie, and with her family.
Craig Walker – Produce Manager
Craig grew up in Calgary and has been on Vancouver Island since 2015. He’s been passionate about the Health Food Industry since 2006 and loves having a career working with produce, especially connecting to the local organic farmers here in the Comox Valley. Craig enjoys everything to do with food and loves cooking and gardening. He appreciates working alongside like-minded people and is grateful that he gets to work in an industry he feels so passionate about.
