Tennessee’s well-known barefoot gardener is back for another insightful workshop at Foxhollow Farm. Come learn about merging modern methods and old-time wisdom of farming and gardening. Jeff Poppen’s enthusiasm for local food stems from 35 years of organic farming. Come and be inspired to grow your own food. This is a class for gardeners. We will cover minerals, biology and tilth of the soil. We will talk about old time farming, biodynamic and organic gardening.
There will be plenty of time at the workshop for questions and answers.
