February is here already and we thought, while we’re waiting for spring to arrive, we’d share a bit more info on a couple of Haliburton folk who are giving talks at the upcoming Victoria Seedy Saturday on February 20. Farmer Shawn Dirksen of Northstar Organics has many years of experience and a lot of valuable insights to share on greenhouse growing for year-round production. Anyone who enjoyed the beautiful cucumbers, peppers and tomatoes that featured in our food boxes and market stands last year will have had a chance to appreciate the fruits of his talents. And now if you want to know how to do that – grow great food, year round, in soil, in unheated greenhouses – you’ll want to catch Shawn’s talk, 10:15-11:15, Feb. 20, at the Victoria Conference Centre, 720 Douglas Street.
