Santa Fe Convention Center

Event Description

Sam Hitt will share the story of how he came to create a diverse, thriving small-scale market garden and nursery in a changing neighborhood on Santa Fe's southern fringe. He will cover crop selection, hand tillage, propagation, irrigation, planning, pest management, egg production, speciality nursery plants, and marketing. The focus will be on lessons learned, mistakes made, and the many challenges and opportunities of sustainably growing and marketing high-value produce in an increasingly water-stressed environment.

This workshop will be presented in English with simultaneous interpretation to Spanish.
