Due to recent circumstances surrounding COVID-19, we have decided to cancel the upcoming 3/21 and 3/28 Growing Growers workshops to the public.
We will be hosting a webinar format for our apprentices so that you can still learn from our speakers and farmers on these core topics! You will also still be receiving the class textbooks and materials for these workshops.
Many of you may have heard of Jean Martin Fortier- a famous market gardener from Canada who has managed to profit over six figures with as little as 1.5 acres of land. We are excited to be sharing his book, The Market Gardener, in our program and we hope you learn as much as we have.
He is constantly featured in Youtube videos and there are a ton of really helpful videos on the internet so if you ever have any questions on a certain subject, try searching it on this platform!
Our first core workshop of the season is on March 21st! It will be on production planning and the various types of plant propagation. We look forward to seeing you there!
