a few questions……do you guys need veggie seeds?
To which Victoria replied:
On seeds – yes – but let me get back to you. We are trying to figure out how to do the tunnels in a serious way so will need to look at what will work best in those, besides the little we already know.
I will just start tomato seeds this month, so we have a little bit of time. I want to get with Ann and see if there is any of this we can do with her village so we are learning on this together as much as possible.
We have tried a little container gardening but found I have to figure out a way to keep them protected from the wind.
I would love to see the link on the idea as we can always look at how to adapt it.
Trees – what are those ? What people here call ‘trees’ are actually just tall shrubs!
Thanks- that is so much getting to be just not enough.
Investment in sustainable gardening should be a large part of maintaining and improving village life in rural Alaska!

A quick e-mail or call to someone who might be able to write a grant, contribute equipment and materials or get the story about this situation into the mainstream media might be the call that makes all the difference!
