Alma Jean Copeland

Pulse crop promoter and home economist, Alma Kingwell was born on a farm near Ruthilda, Saskatchewan. She took her primary education in country schools and her high school in Rosetown. She married Elrose farmer William (Bill) Copeland in 1960 before earning her bachelor's degree in home economics from the University of Saskatchewan in 1961. Ten years later (1971), Alma earned her bachelor's degree in education from the U of S.

A co-owner of Copeland Seeds at Elrose, Alma has promoted lentils and other pulse crops through testing recipes, cooking demonstrations, and judging pulse recipe contests for Saskatchewan Pulse Crop Days. As a home economist, she tested recipes for the Saskatchewan Pulse Crop Growers cookbook, 'The Amazing Legume'. Her promotion of the nutritious use of these products is evidenced in the articles written for The Western Producer and Rosetown Eagle "How do you Manage?" columns.

Alma has played an active role in various executive positions and educational governorships in the Women's Institute at the local, regional and provincial levels. She has represented the provincial body of Women's Institute on the University of Saskatchewan Senate in Saskatoon.

Since 1992, Alma has been co-owner/writer with T.E.A.M. Resources – a family resource management/adult education business with contracts that include weekly home, family and consumer information columns in the Western Producer and Rosetown Eagle. Throughout these years, Alma has held various positions and committee responsibilities on the local and national Home Economics Associations as well as the Saskatchewan Home Economics Teacher's Association.

From 1973 to 1983, Alma worked on the Home Economics Curriculum Committee with Saskatchewan Education. Her chief job was writing the level 30 Interior Design and Housing curriculum that was used in Saskatchewan schools for several years. She was honoured with a life membership in the Saskatchewan Home Economics Teachers Association.

A willing information source for nutrition, food preparation, food preservation and food product questions within her community for many years, Alma has a strong interest in the safe handling and preparation of foods, especially those home or locally grown.

Alma was a university lab instructor in home economics and she was a home economics teacher in Rosetown Composite High School in the 1960s and 70s. She has served in many volunteer capacities in her local community.
