These workshops are taught by Barbara Taylor-Laino, who has been growing food organically since the 1970's. She has extensively studied and researched in Biodynamic, Bio-intensive gardening, Permaculture-styled food production systems, etc., but she has also actively experimented and implemented this information in real-world environments. She has been gardening for and consulting on various levels and sizes of food production enterprises for over 10 years, growing for extensive plant & seedling sales for 9 years, and running her own certified organic CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Farm since 2006. These courses and workshops take place at her farm, Midsummer Farm, in beautiful Warwick, NY, about 1 hour from New York City.  

Midsummer Farm is a CSA farm, a plant and seedling nursery, and a teaching and demonstration farm. The main gardening practices or styles are unique to this farm, but are applicable from a raised 8x10' bed in a suburban backyard, to a community garden endeavor, to a rooftop garden in a city, to a micro-farm, to any multi-acred production farm... They are a combination of great food production techniques that work together to restore fertility, revitalize the land, and that create abundance.

Refund Policies:


If you register for a workshop, but cannot make it to the class... we understand - things happen.


But please do give us the courtesy of a call or email letting us know that cannot make it! Especially during the growing season every minute counts for us - and we often run workshops with very few participants. So we may find ourselves first getting all prepped and ready for you and then sitting around waiting for you to show up. This is a very hurtful waste of farming time. So do let us know if you aren't going to show up! 


We will usually be able to let you use the workshop fee as a credit toward another workshop or for when the original workshop you signed up for runs again. We CANNOT offer a credit if you don't give us at least a day's notice that you won't be able to attend. OUR POLICY IS NO REFUNDS.


RESCHEDULING AND CANCELLATIONS

We usually send out an email reminder a day or so before the workshop. If there is bad weather or a cancellation for some other reason, we will let you know through email.


SO BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR EMAIL!

Organic farming workshops and education as well as courses on using and growing herbs at our farm in Warwick, NY and on-line.

A note on Midsummer Farm Workshops: 
Classes are taught from a strictly Holistic and Organic standpoint. Class size is kept small to ensure individual attention. Fees include all materials and supplies needed. Children are welcome; children under 5 are free. If more than one person from a single household is taking the workshop together, the second person may deduct $5 from the cost of the workshop.


Participants must register in advance for workshops. 


Please see our notes at the bottom of the page on refunds/cancellations...
