The Local Food Project garden got a blanketing of fresh powder last week, reminding us that despite all of our plans for spring, it’s still winter. The hoophouse withstood the storm well, staying warm and dry inside while snow piled up around its edges. The peace and quiet of our little section of Airlie encouraged a moment to reflect on the success of the season behind us and look forward to a bountiful 2009.
What's it like to learn about farming and food at the Local Food Project at Airlie? On Sixteen Foot Ladder, summer interns at LFP share their experiences with growing vegetables and providing fresh produce to Airlie Center. They invite you to follow along on their journey as they explore new practices and fresh ideas related to local food.
