Featured Speaker:

Theo Wederkehr began his gardening career when he was six, helping his parents in their garden where they grew mostly things he hated eating.  When he was given a plot of his own, he grew the two vegetables he liked: lettuce and carrots.  The rabbits ate them.  His tastes have broadened since then, as has the collection of plants he grows.  He is fascinated by comparing how different cultures have integrated the varied food species needed for a complete diet, and experimenting with what elements of those diets can be grown to make a complete diet here.  This interest is shaped in part by three years spent living in Cambodia as a teen, and a degree in Peace and Conflict Studies at the University of Waterloo.  He runs Carrick Seeds with his family on their farm in southern Bruce County, where about 3/4 of the garden area is dedicated to staple crops like corn, rye, potatoes, dry beans and peas.  

The picture shows him in a shoulder-high patch of grain amaranth from Mexico (the seed for which can now be obtained through your seed library!).
