Who Is Frosty Garden?


Jeff and Kayde are the authors of FrostyGarden.com.  We are experienced cold climate gardeners and love the life long challenge of gardening.

We are Jeff & Kayde.  Frosty Garden is our little creation.  We started this effort in 2015 and have continually added to and refined it ever since!

Frosty Garden’s mission is to help create a free, public and accessible body of knowledge on extreme cold climate growing information.  We create this knowledge by practicing the effort, doing our best to pass on what we learn to our readers.

Our Interests

We believe in practicing and promoting subarctic food security through urban and semi-urban community agriculture.

That means growing your own.  It means being the farmer.

We are neither hippies, nor survivalists.  We are good people that like the challenge of learning how to produce for themselves.

Jeff and Kayde pursued a lifestyle in Alaska for the adventure.  For the challenge.  To apply our interests in a place where these skills are more frequently practiced.  We seek to contribute what we learn to others that find themselves on a similar path.

You Help Guide Our Content!

If there’s a particular topic that you’d like us to write more extensively about or possibly do a video on, do feel free to send us a private message or comment somewhere.

We will consider it!  We can’t promise anything, but we always strongly consider user submitted ideas!

We also listen to the questions we get and if we get a particular question frequently, that’s often an indicator to us we need to flesh that idea out more.

We do keep a running list of article and video ideas, but we always prefer to integrate user suggested content into our efforts when we can.

Our goal is to make our efforts focused on your needs in gardening.
