June Organic Gardening Intensive

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

With this 4 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.

We’ll begin on Thursday evening with dinner, followed by a presentation overview on gardening for food production, showing how you can produce all the fruits, vegetables and protein you need to feed yourself and your family.gardening-workshop2

“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.”
