Ever since her childhood on a Niagara farm, Debi has dug in the dirt to find resilience. But when her husband, Peter, was diagnosed with cancer in November, it was too late in the season to seek solace in her garden. As she sought something to sustain her through the hard winter months ahead, she came across Victory Gardens—the vegetable gardens cultivated during the world wars. She researched, drew plans, and ordered seeds. In spring, with Peter in remission, her garden thrived and life got back on track. But when Peter’s cancer returned like a killing frost and he died, the garden was a reminder that everything ends. For weeks she hated the garden, until she allowed her grief to crack open while preparing it for another year. Register to see Debi Goodwin speak at the Grimsby Library about the book she wrote chronicling her experiences on Wednesday, October 2. More info on page 12.
