GRANDE PRAIRIE, AB. – A Grande Prairie farmer made a creative tribute to Dr. Bonnie Henry, using her combine and wheat field.

Nancy Haughian used her combine to create B.C.’s Provincial Health Officer’s famous parting line, “Be kind, be calm, be safe” into one of her wheat fields during her harvest season.

According to an article on Everything GP, Haughian has been doing crop art with her combine for 20 years.

Haughian doesn’t use any GPS to help her cut the art into her crops but instead uses the seed rows and sprayer trackers to guide her.

According to Haughian, the art doesn’t last long; usually, a few days before the rest of the crops are harvested.

Haughian’s Facebook post, as of Tuesday, has been shared almost 500 times and can be viewed below.


Dr. Bonnie Henry has been recognized for her outlook and guidance during the COVID-19 pandemic by multiple people and organizations, including the New York Times who published an article about her this past June. Henry was also awarded the 2020 President’s Award for Outstanding Public Relations and Communications Management, which was announced in July, she is the 11th Canadian to receive the award.
