You’re Growing What? Where?

Wilderness North WeathermanPotatoes. Peas. Carrots, maybe lettuce, and few other “exotics” – that’s the plan for organic gardens at Wilderness North’s floatplane base near Armstrong and up at Miminiska Lodge for the summer of 2009.

Wilderness NorthA special study project I’ll be managing will teach students how this can all happen in soils once thought “no good” for such crops and all in a short season with late spring and early fall frosts presenting a challenge as well. Together with the staff of Wilderness North and a couple of special students from Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, these gardens will be planted, and guests will be served their bounty by late July – if all goes according to plan.

I’ll tell you more in my podcast – click here to listen in.
