The 2019 Prairie Garden: Growing Food
Coming soon! Please check back.
Guest-edited by Tiffany Grenkow, the 2019 Prairie Garden focuses on today’s biggest trend in gardening: growing our own food! More and more people want food that’s fresher and tastier than anything they can buy at a supermarket, and they don’t want it to come from far away. So our very own patch of Earth, no matter how small, is where it’s happening.
Over 50 articles by gardening experts cover all aspects of growing food in our region, including heirloom tomatoes and vegetables, perennial edibles, miniatures and container planting, prairie-hardy fruits, raised bed and permaculture techniques, wild foraging, and new ways of preserving the harvest.
Tiffany Grenkow is an urban farmer, orchard steward, and volunteer garden club instructor at Winnipeg’s South Osborne Community Commons. Sharing her 25 years of experience growing interesting edibles in zone 3, she aims to empower gardeners and enrich communities with the knowledge they need to put home-grown food on their tables.
