Potatoes. 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.
A 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.
