Local Foods Conference To Feature Winter Greenhouses Yankton, S.D. – Carol Ford, a Minnesota vegetable producer specializing in Deep Winter Greenhouse (DWG) production, will provide the keynote speech on Sat., Nov. 2 at the South Dakota Local Foods Conference (SDLFC) at the RedRossa Italian Grille conference area in Pierre, SD. “I produce fresh vegetables in winter thanks to my very efficient and effective deep winter greenhouse. The structure's passive solar design keeps the temps in the greenhouse all winter long conducive to cool weather crops, mostly leafy greens, which are a highly prized local food in Minnesota's coldest months,” said Ford. Ford and her late husband, Chuck Waibel, decided they wanted to grow fresh produce in winter with as little fossil fuel as possible. Waibel created a feasible design while Ford researched the production details. They became overwhelmed by the number of inquiries on their passive solar greenhouse and published the manual ‘Northland Winter Greenhouse.’ Ford is also an educator with the Regional Sustainable Development Partnerships of Minnesota Extension. Ford’s keynote ‘Building Resilient Rural Communities in Northern Climates’ will include big ideas about the concept of resilient rural communities. She will integrate discussion on how DWG production can provide options for young people interested in farming, a method of farming on less land, a welcome income stream in the off-season, a source of fresh foods in food deserts, and a way to YOUR RADIATOR HEADQUARTERS! • Great Parts • Great Warranty On-Hand & In-Stock!

She will give an overview on the design of the structure, discuss how it works, share production methods of crops, and highlight marketing opportunities. “Every year in Minnesota we see more DWGs being built and not all for the same purpose. I want to ignite the imaginations of any farmers who want to know more about this kind of food farming, that provides a welcomed income stream in the ‘off season’ with minimal effort,” said Ford.
