Instructor:
James Sneed, Organic Farmer at Sunbow Farm

Description:
James grew his first organic garden when he was three and gardened and learned with his Grandfather for 20 years. For the last 18 years he has survived in the wilds of Alaska gardening and gathering from the wild. He spent last season on Nash Huber's organic farm in Squim, WA and is now back in Corvallis, his original home base.

Learn from a teacher who has helped people convert traditional yards into food production. Bring a drawing of your yard, a ruler, pencil, eraser, pen and paper. You will leave with a concrete plan created by yourself in consort with James and the class. A workshop for those who really want to have very local food but don't quite know where to start and how to proceed.

Workshop Focuses:

  • Assessing your yard, neighborhood and self for what will work
  • Budgeting for available time, money and tools
  • Locating materials and plants, new and recycled
  • Low cost maintenance and the right tools
  • Harvesting for fresh use and natural storage
  • Designing the layout, planning a timeline

 

Location:

Please pre-register/$30 at the door. Bring lunch.
