On June 7, Rader ran her first virtual workshop. On a program called Zoom, people watch from all over interior Alaska. As they plant, they use Rader for troubleshooting. After her students learn the basics, Rader hopes they can be her growing guinea pigs. Rader’s other digital project is an app called Grow and Tell. She’s asking all Alaskans to tell her what they grow, and how they grow it.
