Last night I went over and talked to the Texada Garden Club about food security, creating regional resilience, and the Powell River Food Security Project. It was really interesting for me to connect with the folks over there and get a taste of what goes on over on the mysterious little island right across from Powell River.

There was clearly a good deal of interest in winter gardening among those present, and someone was handing around Linda Gilkeson’s book Year Round Harvest: Winter Gardening on the Coast. So it reminded me that Linda, who gardens over on Salt Spring Island (in a climate very similar to ours over here), sends out a regular email update about winter gardening. You can find the series of posts archived here as PDF files; and here is Linda’s website.

You can contact Linda by email in order to be added to her mailing list.
