Young farmer Zoe Fuller talks about the growing agriculture scene in Alaska, where US farming statistics are being turned on their heads. You’ll hear about small-scale farmers coming together in the Matanuska Valley and creating a community-based economy in Alaska. Hear also about indigenous foodways and salmon-safe farming practices to protect salmon sources and waterways.
Learn about what it’s like to farm at Singing Nettle Farm in Southcentral Alaska’s short but productive growing season. And learn about root cellaring as Zoe shares her root cellar experience and recent experimentation for keeping farm-grown food through the winter.
