Today, I am very excited to announce that this June, July and August, I will be teaching workshops right on our farm. This workshop has been years in the making and has never been possible before now due to the logistical constraints of not owning my own land or having a place to teach. But now, since I have my own property, a collection of land close enough together and a teaching space that is on the same block as one of our sites, I can now teach in the best place possible! Early bird tickets will become available within the month, but space is limited to 18 per workshop.
Here is a rough outline of the workshop and what you can expect.
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 Curtis’ own farm, Green City Acres, you will see every aspect of his highly productive urban farm 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. Because our farm has multiple locations, we will be riding bikes between sites. We will provide the bike for you, if you don’t have one to bring.
All food provided will be local and organic from Green City Acres and local farms from the area. Gluten free and vegetarian options will be available for those open request.
The course will be taught in a classroom setting for the mornings, then the afternoons will all be spent in the field at our various urban farm sites.
Special discounts are available for members of Curtis’ online course Profitable Urban Farming, and for those that want to take the 5-day course and sign up for a membership.
