Intensive Urban Microfarming workshop with Robin Wheeler

Getting the most out of a normal urban garden can take imagination. This class assists us to boost production through a deeper understanding of microclimating, and of lateral growing, food cycles, succession planting, “shoulder cropping” and much more.

This workshop is offered on a pay what you can basis. Robin’s three hour workshop usually cost around $40. Our contributions to these workshops make it possible for teachers like Robin to expand and to deepen the scope of the important educational and social change work that they are involved in, particularly in these uncertain times.   To register: (or to find out more about hosting a future workshop), please contact Ross Moster at rmoster@flash.net.
