About your Instructor

Kim Ross is a fourth generation farm girl who spent her summers picking pea's in her mother's garden and traveling the prairie land around the farm with her Grandparents looking for the best saskatoons to pick. Producing food was a way of life and it's a tradition Kim continued with her own children!  From her 26,000 square foot no till garden that produces vegetables, fruit and fresh herbs, to producing vegetables all winter long, Kim is an avid grower that enjoys sharing with other gardeners.  Kim is a Master Gardener and is working on her Prairie Horticulture Certificate in both the Greenhouse Crop production and Vegetable and Fruit Production streams.
