What's a Little Gardening Got to Do with Global Warming?

Ellen is especially fond of all things decaying, and is known in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley as The Compost Queen. She is known to mysteriously brew compost tea for farmers, stores, and markets. She provides consultations on eco-agriculture growing systems. Since 1987 she has been training folks how to farm and garden using organic methods. Teaching topics include selecting organic fertilizers, managing pests non-toxically, building living soil, composting successfully, growing lush flowers, lawns, and herbs, and raising nutrient-dense vegetables. She instructs through her own Good Earth Garden School, as well as credit courses through University of Alaska Anchorage, Matanuska-Susitna College, and Alaska Pacific University.
