Paula Anderson, our speaker for February will speak about urban growing of veggies today, both on a small and a large piece of property, including some tried and true varieties, heritage and new varieties. She will also touch on permaculture in relationship to your property.
Paula works part time for Peterborough Green Up, as well as running a 2 acre market garden full of organic vegetables. The vegetables are sold at the Peterborough Downtown Farmer's Market and to By the Bushel Community Food Cooperative in Peterborough, where people can access weekly and monthly baskets of fresh local food produce and other farm products.
Paula is working on her PhD focusing on Indigenous Food Systems and Food Sovereignty and also teaches in Trent University's Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems Program.
