June Organic Gardening Intensive

TBA – June , 2017

You really can grow most of the food your family needs.

With this 5 day intensive, we’ll garden every morning and you’ll get the hands-on experience and gain the confidence to get started on your own.

Every afternoon we’ll visit other permaculture homesteads and gardens, including Amish country.

Begin each day in the garden at 6 AM and beat the heat.

At 9 AM we’ll break for showers and breakfast.

Every afternoon we’ll visit other gardeners,
including CSA’s and the local Amish community.

“The organic gardening weekend was a beautiful experience! Even with it raining nearly all weekend, we found tons to keep us busy, from harvesting honey to touring Permaculture farms in the area. I was so happy I got to visit The Farm and see life in an intentional community as well.  All in all I hope i make it back someday.”
