Book Curtis for an Event

Profitable Market Gardening 5-day – October 16-20, 2017

Selmer, TN @ Rose Creek Farms

Join Curtis Stone 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 Rose Creek Farms in Selmer, Tennessee. You will see every aspect of his highly productive 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!
We will have on-site accommodation available for this workshop. You are also welcome to stay wherever you choose. 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.
All food provided will be local and organic from Rose Creek Farms 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.
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.
Space is limited to 33 people, so sign up fast!

Small Farming for Profit – January 11, 2018

This course is a new format for a 1-day workshop with Curtis. We will take a tour of all the infrastructure such as greenhouses, post-harvest station and walk-in cooler, as well as demonstrate all the important tools for running an efficient and profitable small farm. The course will take place at Roebuck farm in New Plymouth, New Zealand. This will be Curtis’ third time returning to Roebuck farm and he has overseen and had a direct hand in establishing the farm to model his, Green City Acres. In this course you will get a first hand look at what Curtis’ farm might look like if it was in New Zealand. This course will be hosted entirely outside, so please dress for hot weather with a chance of rain.

People wanting to take this course should at least have a moderate understanding of some of the concepts written about in The Urban Farmer.
