Kenai Garden Talk

11 a.m. the second Saturday of the month

Anything to do with growing, raising and producing your own food on the Kenai Peninsula is fodder for this show, from aphids to zucchini, maintaining high tunnels to processing high-bush cranberries, selling at farmers markets to putting up produce for winter. In each show, we’ll pick seasonal trends and topics, harvest tips from master gardeners, profile people who are cultivating creative ideas and dig into whatever other interesting things crop up.

Dr.  George Spady shares tips for finding fungi on the forest floor.

Yes, there's still snow on the ground but that doesn't mean gardeners can't get some dirt under their fingernails. Get your seeds started indoors, plan to grow your farming business and harvest tips from experienced gardeners at a season kickoff roundtable event.
