Beany Dootjes is a lifelong gardener whose aim is growing an annual supply of fruits and vegetables, while favouring non-genetically modified strains. She focuses on an organic, 100-mile diet that optimizes water consumption, mulching, soil amendments, and plant selection based on our local climate. Dootjes considers both economy and climate changes, while embracing sustainable food practices. This piece references the downtown farmers market using tomatoes in various states of ripening. The colourful array also reads as festive bubbles!
