Profitable Market Gardening – 5 Day Workshop
Join Curtis Stone (author of The Urban Farmer) for his most intensive and thorough workshop to date. This five day course is the cumulative content of all of his best techniques used at his farm Green City Acres, but also what he’s learned from traveling and visiting some of the most successful market gardens in North America and abroad.
This is a technical, practical and hands on course. Hosted at Steadfast Farm in Queen Creek Arizona, the home farm of Erich Shultz. You will see every aspect of this highly productive market garden demonstrated in the field. Everything from preparing beds, planting, harvesting, post-harvest and everything in between. These five days will be the last thing you need to completely get your farm started strong or radically improve what you’re already doing.
Everyone who enrols will be given a free digital copy of Curtis’ one day workshop prior to starting, with 12 hours of content to watch at their leisure, a $200 value. Taking the one day course before the five day event, will give you a head start so that you’re familiar with all the concepts. That way, we can jump right in head first and get down and dirty!
Participants will be responsible for their own accommodation, but the event will be catered each day with coffee and biscuits in the morning, and a full buffet style lunch, and a light snack late afternoon.
The course will be split up into half classroom setting and half in the field. We will work around the weather and teach inside when the weather isn’t favourable. We’ll save the field teachings for when the weather is optimal for all of us.
Space is limited to 35 people.
