The Traveling Greenhouse in Kake

    Newer Older

    The Traveling Greenhouse is about sharing knowledge and food production skills between schools across the region. Local educators use the greenhouse for a growing season and teach students how to cultivate foods in our Alaskan climate. Schools and community partners are left with the resources and inspiration needed to continue growing food in greenhouses and outdoor gardens long after the greenhouse wheels out of town and heads out on the Alaska Marine Highway to the next eagerly awaiting community.

    These photos show the community of Kake using the greenhouse and also building raised garden beds to expand their growing capacities.
