Picking, Preparing and Enjoying Prairie Fruit
This is the sixth 2012 instalment in the PrairieGardenCommittee’s series of Gardening Information Talks.
Professional Home Economist, author and gardener, Getty Stewart loves growing, picking, preserving and, especially, eating local fruits and veggies.
In 2010, after witnessing surplus fruit in Winnipeg backyards wasting away, she started Fruit Share – a volunteer organization that harvests and shares surplus fruit.
In Spring 2012, she launched Prairie Fruit Cookbook: The Essential Guide for Picking, Preserving and Preparing Fruit to educate people on how to harvest, store, preserve, use and share prairie fruit.
Getty and her kids grow veggies on a community plot along the banks of the Red River and are slowly converting their small front yard into a mini-orchard.
