Workshops

 

We are excited for you to discover the joys of learning to grow your own food! Our hands-on workshops are designed to help you gain a deeper understanding of the foundations of growing. We don’t pretend to have all the answers OR promise that you’ll be a great grower right after our classes. We will, however, give you a foundation for becoming a patient and informed practitioner of tending to your garden or homestead, caring for animals and stewarding your piece of land.

Our workshops are 4-4.5 hours long and consist of hands on experience, are accompanied by lecture and a time for questions and answers! Classes are small so there will be ample time for clarifications so you can get a full grasp on the material.
