Beyond Sustainable: Organic Gardening Course

5-Session Course

Spring 2015

A 5-Session Hands-On Experience in growing your own nutrient-dense food, organically, abundantly, intensively, and beyond sustainably.

This course covers all the major aspects of growing food organically that have successfully been working for us, here at Midsummer Farm.

When taking this course, you'll experience a comprehensive and hands on learning opportunity in how to grow organic food. We have been certified organic since 2005 and we follow all the National Organic Program rules. However we also go way above and beyond the standard organic standards, producing an abundance of food on a small footprint of land and designing our growing program using nature as a guide and inspiration.

We used to say we garden sustainably, but now we find ourselves feeling compelled and even encouraged by the natural balance we've achieved to go beyond sustainable, and we garden to enhance vitality so we can address the toxic environment that we find ourselves in as a culture. The garden becomes a sanctuary, an expression of art, a healing force for the earth, and more... A garden should not be about the work you put into it or the harvest, but rather about the process itself.

Cost of the 5-Session Program is $385.00

Session dates:

Classes run from 10 am to 3 pm.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at info@midsummerfarm.com.
