Day 2: Start Gardening & Composting for Financial & Food Security

Today we tour the Blue Skye Farm greenhouse Kim prepared, sharing ideas for how to start seeds, then we’ll look at our compost system, overwintering garden plants, and how prepare old potatoes, sweet potatoes, onions, and other staples straight from the grocery store into the ground. Please consider a donation if you enjoy the video lesson and would like to help keep Wolf Camp administrative staff employed through springtime.

TEMPORARY NOTE: We need 1,000 subscribers before we can live stream via YouTube from our phone in the field so PLEASE go to https://www.youtube.com/wolfcampcollege and subscribe. Again, they have a rule that we need 1,000 subscribers in order to schedule live streams from our phone or tablet. Let’s get this done quick and ask all your family and friends to subscribe as well. THANKS!

Join us tomorrow when we plan a trip into the woods to harvest stinging nettles – a critical plant to have on hand for food, fiber and medicine.

Announcements & Reminders:

– Please Launch PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) Drives for your local emergency hospitals, first responders, homeless service providers and other essential care givers!

– Going outside is the healthiest way to maintain happiness while social distancing, where virus concentrations dissipate in the fresh air and get killed by ultraviolet (UV) rays, and where the sun helps us produce Vitamin D which also keeps us happy and well. Gardening is also a great way to stay healthy, and if things get tough, one of the best ways to increase your food security.




Please consider a contribution if you benefited from this video, and help us keep Wolf Camp and the Conservation College at Blue Skye Farm going during this time when we can’t run spring workshops. We’re hoping to keep administrative staff employed in advance of the summer camp season.

Thanks, and please catch live broadcasts on the Wolf Camp facebook page or via the Wolf College youtube channel live stream if we’re within wifi range starting at 6:00 PM Pacific, or view it when we post it here at 7:00 PM, until the social distancing era end or June 14, 2020, whichever comes quickest:)
