Rod Kueneman and Tiffany Grenkow are presenting a fascinating discussion on food security, techniques for building healthy soil, and delicious edibles that you can grow in your garden.
Rod Kueneman and Tiffany Grenkow are garden stewards for the food forest at Sustainable South Osborne Community Co-operative (SSOCC). Located at 250 Churchill Dr., the fruit orchards and network of riverside garden plots near Riverview Health Centre are models of efficiencies.
Kueneman is a senior scholar in the faculty of sociology at the University of Manitoba. Call him the master builder, if you will, of the infrastructure for this unique permaculture site, which has matured far beyond its beginnings 10 years ago as a community garden promoting environmental sustainability practices. Kueneman has a vision for building a more resilient future in a changing world.
Grenkow is an urban farmer and a self-avowed foodie. Her inspiration comes from an immense passion and curiosity about food and all its culinary possibilities — an inspiration that helps to attract the new connections so vital to the success of this large and diverse growing endeavour.
“Together, Kueneman and Grenkow work in tandem with a core of volunteers, who are critical to the activities of the gardens and orchards at SSOCC. What can all of us learn from their combined efforts at this extraordinary outdoor living classroom?” — Winnipeg Free Press, July 6, 2019
