Michelle LaFriniere chose one of the toughest places on earth to grow peonies.  Her Chilly Root Farm is located at the base of a glacier on the Kachemak Bay, and plays a big part in Alaska’s newest export–peonies!

Learn about growing beautiful peonies, perennials and fruit trees by understanding how to use micro-climates to your advantage.  Change your mindset and understand that wind can be your friend.

Part of the Slow Flower Movement, Michelle’s farm is Certified Naturally Grown which means she uses no chemical additives in her soil.  She shares her thoughts on our symbiotic relationship with nature as well as easy organic tips for dealing with pests, making organic teas and how glaciers have improved the soil.
