Savour Food – Start some seedlings or start a farm

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.

Karen’s Monthly Food Column on Alberta @ Noon – Ways to grow your own food

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?

  2. Hi Emily,
    You can live stream the Salatin workshops from anywhere in the world. Check out that link in my blog and you’ll be able to join from wherever you are. That’s what that whole wide web thing was really meant for…using technology to share.
    Cheers, Karen
