Saturday, February 16th, 1:00-4:00 PM
Laughing Dog Farm, Gill, MA
This is an intro-level class for any inspired grower, chef or “foodie” seeking to reliably produce amazing, nutrient-dense food, around the calendar, on small, backyard plots, rooftops, in containers, passive solar hoophouses, etc., under a variety of “marginal” and real-life conditions.
Inspired both by permaculture principles, dumpster diving and gleaning, as well as 20+ years of organic, no-till gardening, diversified grower Danny Botkin will explain and demonstrate his uniquely low-tech, opportunistic gardening practices (“strategic minimalism”), including low-till soil building, intensive “bunch” propagation, as well as a variety of other, non-traditional, hand-powered, season extension methods, available to anyone
This class includes a walking (greenhouse) tour, Q and A, plus farm snacks and discussion. $25 suggested donation or barter. Class size limited, please RSVP by email or: 413-863-8696.
