After two incredibly successful seasons, the Permaculture Research Institute Cold Climate is saying farewell to Backyard Harvest. Although Backyard Harvest is no more, PRI will continue to support urban farmers through our Urban Farming Certification Program. We are also extremely excited that Backyard Harvest Program Coordinator, Krista Leraas, and Urban Farmer, Dina Kountoupes, will continue to do backyard farming and permaculture work as Harvest Moon Backyard Farmers. PRI will partner with them this summer to continue supplying fresh vegetables to food shelves and to offer hands-on training for urban farmers.
Deep gratitude to everyone who helped to make this program a success whether you donated a few dollars, volunteered to flyer or care for a food shelf garden, or played a cheerleader role! We couldn’t have done it without you.
