the Kenai Peninsula is incredibly unique with a short
growing season, long days, mild temperatures and a
diversity of soil types and micro climates.
Snowfall fluctuates depending on location and year. Our

networking as we tour local gardens, arrange gardening
workshops, and plan the next plant sale.
