John Jeavons presents 1-, 3-, and 5-day workshops, classes and presentations about GROW BIOINTENSIVE® Sustainable Mini-Farming in different locations through the year. (Ecology Action also offers tours, classes, workshops, internships, and apprenticeships: click here to see a full schedule of Ecology Action Events.)
Ecology Action invites everyone to a 3-Day GROW BIOINTENSIVE® Sustainable Mini-Farming Workshop in Willits, CA on March 27-29, 2020!
GROW BIOINTENSIVE is the original regenerative, sustainable agriculture, rooted in heritage farm-craft and proven with science. Together with Ecology Action farm staff, I’ll share the skills grown over 48 years of developing, using and teaching this wonderfully productive system.
In just 3 days, you’ll learn how to use up to 66% less water, up to 94% less energy, and grow soil up to 60 times faster than nature – all while increasing your garden yields—plus much more.
Whether you’re a backyard gardener or a market farmer, this workshop will build your skills, just in time to go into winter and prepare for spring. Come, have fun, and learn How to Grow More Vegetables (and other crops) than you ever thought possible, on less land, and with less water than you can imagine!
Complete information, prices, and registration are available at: growbiointensive.org/workshop.html
Registration closes March 26, but these workshops can fill early, so don’t wait too long!
Hope to see you there! ♥

“While planning my trip to the Heirloom Expo I contacted some of the world’s top garden experts for interviews, and when John Jeavons of GROW BIOINTENSIVE responded to my email inquiry with a date and time to meet, I jumped out of my chair. What luck!” – Christy, Author at Gardenerd
