'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'

'The challenge for us has been to find a way past our home delivery sales model. We adopted this during Covid when we lost all our wholesale accounts, and needed to pivot quickly to stay in business. Whilst it turned into a runaway success it was also burning us both out! Growing far to many crops to provide the website with variety and and delivery day sometimes turned into a 10hr ordeal
Our online consult followed by 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 have just finished the two day market garden weekend workshop with Jodi and Tanya. 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'
