Profitable Market Gardening
Tuesday 7th - Friday 10th February 2017
Curtis Stone (author of The Urban Farmer) ran his most intensive and thorough workshop to date. This four day course was the cumulative content of all of his best techniques used at his farm Green City Acres, but also what he’s has learned from traveling and visiting some of the most successful market gardens in North America and abroad.
This technical, practical and hands on course, hosted at Roebuck Farm, in New Plymouth New Zealand, saw every aspect of market gardening demonstrated in the field. Everything from preparing new land, planting, harvesting, post-harvest and everything in between.
All participants were given a free digital copy of Curtis’ one day workshop with 12 hours of content.
