We are excited to be able to offer another practical workshop from our farm.
9am to 5pm. Sat 12th & Sun 13th November at ROEBUCK FARM
Our work combines the principles of Kay Baxter of Koanga Institute, John Jeavons author of ‘How to Grow More Vegetables’, Curtis Stone of ‘The Urban Farmer’ and Jean-Martin Fortier of ‘The Market Gardener’ and our 18 years working in this field. The principles are scalable from the urban backyard to the market garden.
BioIntensive is a method of growing as much organic food as possible in the smallest amount of space. The method draws upon a variety of intensive agricultural methods practiced thousands of years. The method was designed to provide food security for those who practice it, while continually building and developing the soil and conserving natural resources. The result is producing safe food year after year in the same small space.
Practiced in over 130 countries across the world this method can be produced by people in any climate where food can be grown, with limited resources.
