Keeping Food Real is growing

Popular Cold Climate Gardening Program is now available online

Now beginner and intermediate gardeners can gain unlimited access to cold climate gardening resources at their fingertips with the Keeping Food Real Cold Climate Gardening Online Course.

With reports predicting a dramatic rise in vegetable prices in 2019, due to drier conditions being predicted in Mexico and California, some are calling 2019 the year to grow your own veggies.

Students can now take a handcrafted e-learning adventure under the guidance of experienced cold climate gardeners.

Keeping Food Real is a cold climate garden education program created by the Wildsight Elk Valley branch that has educated hundreds of adult learners since 2008. After hosting over 40 gardening workshops in the last decade, the Keeping Food Real educator team has increased the ability of learners to access the in-depth garden resources through the development of an online course.

“There are a lot of gardening resources out there, but many don’t address the unique shorter growing season and conditions in our region” explained Dawn Deydey, Keeping Food Real Program coordinator. “We want to support gardeners in growing their knowledge, skills, ability and confidence to create a thriving garden. That is where the Cold Climate Gardening Online Course comes to the rescue.”

The popularity of online learning industry is booming, and for good reason. Now students have the opportunity to learn wherever they are by accessing their course content on their computer, laptop or smartphone. This works especially well for those who can’t give up a weekend to attend a gardening workshop.

Wildsight Elk Valley gratefully acknowledges the financial support of the province of British Columbia through the Ministry of Agriculture.
