Event description

Description

Catastrophic climate change looms and we desperately need more plants on our globe, right? But districts are desertifying. Simultaneously, a health crisis is sapping our energy and destroying way too many lives , never to mention bankrupting the richest nations. For these reasons, many of us are now literally gardening for our lives. Can you afford not to ?
Food is the best medicine, but gardening / agronomic misinformation abounds! During this course we will bust these myths and show you how to grow nutrient dense food. Not Monsanto's way, but Nature's way. It is simple and it is all about soil. LIVING SOIL holds 10 times its own weight in water, no longer needs to grow weeds, produces abundant disease- free plants and ( as a huge bonus) just happens to cool the planet whenever the sun is shining!
By teaming with microbes and respecting the billion year old partnership of animals, plants and fungi , your gardening will enter a new phase of abundance. A jam packed 2 days will leave you clear and confident in your food growing ability, our organic farm will inspire you, and a 75 page manual is yours on sign up, to study in advance if you so desire. So come on, join the growing number of new biological farmers emanating from this course.
The smallest things on Earth could in fact be the most powerful, and this may be the best time and money you ever spent.
