We hold urban gardening and backyard farming workshops for those who want to get their hands dirty with purpose.   

October 26 Workshop 

This workshop is especially for those interested in starting their own urban kitchen garden in a patio, veranda, or even indoors, while practicing sustainable, organic and biodynamic methods. We are combining the wisdom and hands-on expertise of real farmers and homesteader. For would-be and aspiring farmers, this is a rare and powerful learning opportunity.

During the workshop, you will have the opportunity to:

 

    • Learn to grow healthy food to eat and also have a kitchen “farm-acy” for herbs and medicinal plants;
    • Gain a basic understanding of biodynamic growing, permaculture, agro-forestry and sustainable agriculture practices. In particular, we introduce a method of transforming your small space into an urban garden.
    • Making compost for small spaces;
    • Learn practical skills to grow food in your small space or even indoors;
    • Plan your kitchen garden, including the edible plants that you may successfully grow; and
    • Start to culture and raise earthworms in your home
    • Sprouting and using plants for continuous planting and harvesting cycles.
