If you are interested in helping our many endeavors here at Gardens in the Arctic there are several avenues available to you.  All funds or items donated will go directly towards our efforts in establishing a sustainable healthy food source here in Anaktuvuk Pass.  All funds and items will go towards providing the tools and supplies needed for our families that are growing in their own backyard to feed their households (they receive everything for free and are never charged for anything) or they will go towards the high tunnel business which provides for the rest of the village.  Please include a mailing address so that we can send you a thank you card/small gift!

Seed Donations:  Please do not send seed that you have saved from your area or personal garden.  We are working diligently to prevent plant diseases and invasive species from establishing themselves in our area.  We ADORE seeds though!  Feel free to purchase seed from businesses and ship them to us, or you can send us a gift certificate from the businesses that we use above. We prefer plants that have a grow season of 30-70 days, but will try ANY plant that has a grow season of up to 90 days at least once (okay maybe a few times).   Please mail to: Gardens in the Arctic, PO Box 21106, Anaktuvuk Pass, AK, 99721

QUYANAQ!  Thank you to all of our supporters!

  1. Hi I just saw your story on PBS and would like to make a donation. I couldn’t find you on Amazon. What would be the most helpful to you? I want to get something to you as soon as possible as I know the fall and winter will be difficult. You are doing an amazing thing for your community! Kathy

  2. Saw your wonderful article on PBS tonight and would love to help you out. We are avid north country gardeners near the Canadian border in Vermont, but don’t have to deal with anything quite like you do! Is your shopping list on the blog still current? Would you prefer a gift card to purchase what you need or would you prefer we purchase from your Amazon wish list? Good luck, with global warming you may soon get red tomatoes. Kitty

  3. I’m so impressed. 40 odd years ago toured Alaska and visited Fairbanks, agricultural college. Thought Artic Gardening was something of an oxymoron. Times change. Now I have many questions about your operation. Like, is the garden on permafrost ground, is it always frozen, what happens if it melts uder the tunnel? When does your season start and end? I saw you mentioned bumblebees, what are your pollinators or do you do it by hand?
    I can’t imagine that it got so hot as to curl your Kale. In your new tunnel you will need a vent to be opened and closed as needed.
    It was really great that you got the tunnel donated, that is big bucks. Flying everything in has got to be expensive. It seems that taking the cover off and on each year is a major undertaking. And that’s just the beginning. Do you have to buy soil or is there soil locally? Fertilizer? Make your own fish fertilizer?
    What kind of insect pests do you Have? diseases
    Ten-twelve years ago the State did a survery of life styles in the different counties. Wahkiakum came out 27 out of 28 counties. So the health department started the community garden in hopes of providing healthier food. I amd my master gardner friend have assumed the roles of co-managers. The garden is all in- ground and has 27 plots, roughly 10 x 12′ for individuals. About 1/3 of the garden is given to raised beds in which we grow for the local food bank. This year with resturants and schools closed, commerical growers seemed to be giving lots to the food banks so we switched to donating to the summer school lunch program, volunteers made luches for school children whose parents signed up.
    What I have come to believe is that our clinetele is not so sophisticated that they want exotic foods. With a few exceptions we are now going to plants that give mutiple harvests over several weeks.
    Looked up Denali seeds, many are the same old stand-bys I buy. About tomatoes, there are several determinate
    cultivars that ripen early. Stupice, Siberian, Glacier, Early girl and Early boy, Stilez, Oregon Spring plus some cherries. You probably wouldn’t ever get the beefsteaks. Then you need to learn to use green tomatoes, pick them and store on a counter if they are beginning to show any color.
    At any rate, if you need seeds, let me know and I will try to get what you need. My seed catalogs start coming just before Christmas and they usually have an order-buy date for specials. usually mid March.
    Does the State or Dept of Ag give you any grants?
    I’ve rambled on long enuf, again I am so impressed with what you are doing and have some idea of what you go thru
