Gardening is a continual learning process. Sometimes, my teachers are the soil, plants, and lived experience — and sometimes they are more experienced growers who generously share their wisdom. I recently had the opportunities to interview a couple of farmers I greatly admire: Nardendra Varma of Our Table Cooperative and Holly Mackay, garden manager at Hollyhock, Canada’s lifelong learning centre. Here are our conversations.
