The Homestead Radio Hour - Handmade Holidays, December 2011

Date 16 December 2011

With hosts Phyllis and Julia Boorinakis-Harper

What are your favourite gifts to make and give? What handmade treats will you be giving this year? On this month’s episode of the Homestead Radio Hour: we’re celebrating Handmade Holidays, and we want to hear your suggestions for local, sustainable, useful, and meaningful presents. From jams and jellies to cozy hand-knit socks to great garden tools and must-have guidebooks, homesteaders always think outside the gift box… and our listeners are no exception!

Plus, we talk with Jim and Ginger Armstrong, of Snowy Peaks Christmas Tree Farm in Foresthill, about their 14 years in the tree-growing business. Find out why a fresh, locally-grown, natural, and real tree is the sustainable and eco-friendly choice, and how these farmers are caring for their land while cultivating family holiday traditions.
