John Jeavons, best-selling author of "How to Grow More Vegetables"
(600,000+ copies sold) teaches in-depth course on growing food and fertile soil!
WILLITS, CA - Ecology Action and John Jeavons Present our biannual 3-Day GROW BIOINTENSIVE® Sustainable Mini-Farming Workshop in Willits, CA, on November 1-3 2019.
GROW BIOINTENSIVE is the original regenerative, organic, sustainable agriculture, rooted in heritage farm-craft and proven with science. Bestselling author, farmer, and Ecology Action Director John Jeavons and Ecology Action farm staff will share the skills they have grown over 48 years of developing, using and teaching this wonderfully productive system.
In just 3 days, you'll learn how to reduce water use up to 66%, use up to 94% less energy, and grow soil fertility up to 60 times faster than nature - all while increasing your garden yields - plus much more.
John Jeavons and Ecology Action developed the unique GROW BIOINTENSIVE Sustainable Mini-Farming method over 48 years, based on centuries-old agricultural principles that enable you to feed yourself by feeding your soil with healthy, nutrient-rich compost grown on-site.
Not all compost is equal: better compost means better soil, better water and nutrient retention, and higher yields. At our 3-Day Workshop you will learn how to craft powerful "soil food" so that you add more nutrients to your garden than you take out each season. If you're interested in learning about proven ways to grow a great soil and abundant harvest in less space with less water, energy, and fertilizer - not new fads but time-tested approaches - we would love to see you this fall.
Whether you're a backyard gardener or a market farmer, this workshop will build skills that will last you a lifetime. Come, have fun on a sustainable farm in beautiful Mendocino County, and learn How to Grow More Vegetables (and other crops) than you ever thought possible, on less land, and with less water than you can imagine!
