Isis Loran- Winter Gardener in Canada
Isis has been winter gardening for 6 years now in the Canadian mountains. The deep snow and cold hasn’t stopped her from harvesting year-round. From low tunnels to unheated greenhouses, Isis has achieved winter harvests in her growing zone 5. The biggest challenge isn’t the winter, it’s the heat waves of the summer and fall on cool season crops. She’ll help you overcome these challenges and guide you through the best cold hardy varieties tested and tried on her mountain valley homestead.
My name is Isis Loran, creator of the Family Food Garden. I’ve been gardening for over 10 years now and push the limits of our zone 5 climates. I love growing heirlooms & experimenting with hundreds of varieties, season extending, crunchy homesteading and permaculture.
