Summary

There is a growing conflict between cities and agriculture for fresh water. To learn what we can grow without irrigation in semi-arid regions, and to demonstrate the potential of a more local food production, I have been experimenting with dry land storage vegetables (potatoes, winter squash and onions) on our organic farm in North Central Montana in the Northern Great Plains of North America.
