Roebuck Farm Newsletter

First of all, this is not another online course by any stretch.

Instead here you get hands-on experience to understand activities formed within the actual market garden production cycle.

Expect to apply business concepts + practical applications leaving with confidence to implement design, bed preparation, make tool selection, crop choices, suss propagation, harvesting + taking your product into restaurant, retail, or market.

'If you think growing food for others is a life for you, a course with Jodi is a must do. His generous sharing will see anyone off to a great start no matter what their endeavor or scale of food production'

Time spent at Roebuck Farm showed us how to zero in on our most profitable crops and then where to sell them for the best return. This new focus has also shown us how Soul Food Farm can support our family and allow me to leave my 30hr/wk farming job and focus solely on our business.'

'I cannot recommend this course enough! It was an incredibly inspiring, informative and entertaining experience. Jodi's wealth of knowledge and the level of detail he can go into crunching numbers and sharing his personal experiences of the many trials over decades that have failed or been successful is gold. His knowledge of the best gardening tools and machinery is next level. The food also that Tanya provided was five star! Awesome people sharing vitally important information. THANK YOU'
