Here’s the CBC Radio One Alberta @ Noon podcast from Thursday, March 7 when I talked about ideas to help you grow your own food – everything from starting your own seeds to starting your own farm. I’m at the 12.22 mark in the podcast.
There are lots of great gardening workshops and how-to farm sessions coming up in Alberta this month for those interested. I may never farm but I’m going to Joel Salatin’s “You Can Farm” workshop on March 20 in High River, Alberta. I want to see if he lives up to all the hype. I’ll report back to you on that later. Besides, one of my favourite ways to savour life is to meet people on the leading edge of thought. Maybe I’ll see you there?
