Building a world of
resilient communities.

MAIN LIST

 

Winter gardening, guerilla gardening


With tougher times around the corner, we'll need to find local sources of fossil-free food year-round. We can grow it, even in the northern USA and Canada. And we can plant food perennials and trees in pubic and private spaces.

Master winter gardener Eliot Coleman grows year round in Maine, USA with unheated hoop houses. UK, guerrilla gardener Chris Tomlinson plants public and private spaces with more food. You tube rant by "HumptyDumptyTribe" warns global famine from climate change could come soon. Ends with winter greenhouse interview by William Garrison of "Locavore," with Martin Ronda at the University of Guelph Centre for Urban Organic Farming. Radio Ecoshock Show 111207 1 hour.
