The Tyonek Garden team enjoyed hosting the garden youth team from the Center for Alaskan Coastal Studies yesterday! This group of seven teens learned about soil composition (and discovered both loam and clay in our garden), weeded the high tunnels, planted new kale starts, shared the first radish harvest of the season, explored bugs and veggies under the microscope, and swapped agricultural tips/tricks. Thank you CACS for visiting our Tyonek operations. We would love to see you out here again for the harvest! See MoreSee Less

The Tyonek Grown Group spent the weekend with the Calypso farms and ecology center were we learned and shared a ton of garden information like: soil health and building soils, adding Nutrients to soils and plants, tool maintenance and animal livestock. We also harvested and made snack foods with herbs, and much more while ending the week off with Pizza making and ice cream cranking. We enjoyed learning together and sharing information with the group from Golovin. See MoreSee Less

TTCD would like to welcome our 2022 summer interns, back row L to R we have James, Dakota and Donovan, and up front we have Naomi and our vet employee AJ. Interns will be assisting Tonya Kaloa this summer at the garden for the next 11 weeks. We are excited to have a total of 6 interns this summer, with one more youth coming to the team in mid June. With one week finished and 11 more to go, our summer interns have already shown wonderful leadership and great enthusiasm for being team players. We hope everyone enjoys this Memorial day, weekend.
