Grow More Locally and Produce Food Anywhere

Our food system comes at a cost. Often the food from our grocery stores has to travel long distances to get to our tables. If gardeners in Inuvik and Iceland can grow food in those extreme areas why cant we all do our part to improve food security and reduce the carbon cost of the food we eat.

I am going to start a new series that will expand past back yard gardening and look at other methods we can all grow our own food and see if those methods reduce, are equal too or have a higher carbon footprint.

I am also going looking to do more public speaking engagements. Tomorrow I will be speaking at the Sangudo Garden Day. (link below) If you know of any speaking engagements please feel free to shoot me an email at

I am also going to expand my video blog series to bring you along during the 2017 season so you can follow along with my Zone 3 garden!
