This fine-looking garden has resulted from the implamentation of the Dr. Jacob Mittleider method of gardening. Seeds started in grow boxes, fed with a special MIttleider mineral mix, soon developed into seedlings, which were then transplanted into specially created and treated thirty-foot rows. For more information, you can visit Jim Kennard’s non-profit The Food for Everyone Foundation.

Jim worked closely with Dr. Mittleider for many years before the good doctor turned over everything to him. Dr. Mittleider has since passed on.

Jim travels all over the world teaching this important gardening method and promises and is in the process of creating a gardening school in Kidder.

Don’t you wish everyone’s garden looked like this?

Comments are welcome.
