Mini-Workshop: Week 6

Join us from 9-11am for a mini-workshop at our Research & Demonstration mini-farm!

Each session includes a garden tour, demonstration of skills and techniques and an opportunity to to get some experience practicing those techniques in the garden.  Each week focuses on one or more specific Grow Biointensive principals.

Week 6: Companion Planting and Garden Design

Join us for the final installment of our on farm mini workshop series!

We'll discuss the benefits of companion planting and the many ways plants can benefit each other in the garden.  We'll also talk about garden planning, crop selection, and the 52 week plan we use on our mini-farm.

Following the discussion we'll complete a garden design exercise and discuss how we can use the 8 principals of Grow Biointensive to create a truly sustainable mini-farm or garden at home!

Hope we see you there!
