Growth of the Soil.
Kootenay Corner Gardens is located where the Slocan River and Kootenay River meet. It's right on the Kootenay corner! This land has always felt rich and fruitful - as if it wanted to be apart of something bigger. This is where I grew up. Going away for a while, I explored, travelled and worked as a Chef in different places but somehow it just made sense to come back. Not just to the Kootenays but to this very land. As most things do, it started small and slow - living in a renovated barn and growing vegetables to cook with at home and work. Eventually, one thing led to another and we bought a piece of the land for our own. Now I will be growing vegetables as a full time thing! It still feels like small beginning but I'm excited to offer the the growth of this beautiful soil to the community!
