The Winter Garden

The Manresa garden is anything but idle during the winter. Cynthia Sandberg is expanding the growing capacity of the farm, seeds are germinating in the newly installed greenhouse, and David and Cynthia are incorporating age-old methods of biodynamic farming to enrich the soil. Watch this newsletter in an upcoming issue for a pictorial report from the Manresa farm on the biodynamic approach to vegetable growing that Cynthia and David are using.

Tune in to In Wine Country (NBC11) for a visit to the farm with Cynthia and David as they share some insights about the Manresa farm, and follow as David goes from the farm to the Manresa kitchen where he prepares the September Tomato Modernista Dinner with tomatoes grown at the Manresa garden. In Wine Country airs Saturday, December 16 at 6:30 p.m. and again on Monday, December 18 at 12:30 a.m. Please check your local listings.
