I am really getting excited about all the wonderful projects that lie ahead for us in the coming yr.
The more I look into Aboriginal /Native American gardening & farming the more I know this is the way I want to go.
I want to learn all I can of harvesting growing within our natural environment .
I want to give back and learn and share with others in our community projects .
and next year in 2012 we are not missing the Wild Food Summit and our own
local Harvest Moon Festival ! We are saving now ☺
We are in zone 4 so I need to look into what really is hardy and will grow well within our growing season .
I already know that dh dream of bee keeping is a go because there are bee keepers as far north as Thompson MB.
I really feel the great need for First Nations people to become self sustaining once again and this is beginning to be taking place in some areas ☺
I'm also thrilled to be finding new books !
These two shown we have and are really great !
Buffalo Bird Woman's accounts of gardening are astounding .
This book talks also about food storage & preparation too .
I have a new love of the Sunflower and for certain will make it a major crop .
All of Michael Caduto's books are just awesome ! I'm going to really plan well ahead for work projects for the kids next year .
