Growing Food As If The Earth Matters
Description:

You can help mitigate the impacts of climate change while growing vitally rich foods. By using simple and earth-friendly materials and techniques like cardboard mulching, occultation, leaf mould, cover cropping, and urine reclamation you can turn marginal land into a highly-productive garden without fancy tools.

In this workshop veteran grower Ricky Baruc, co-creator of Seeds of Solidarity, will provide low cost, easy to implement, minimal maintenance techniques to sequester carbon and build life in the soil.

Home gardeners, community gardeners and small farmers will leave this day-long workshop with inspiration and practical techniques to transform their gardens.

Heres a run-down of the workshop schedule:

  • Morning Session: Carbon-Smart Regenerative Growing Principles and Practices: Learn to grow on marginal land using local resources for fertility and never tilling (no machinery necessary).

  • Potluck Lunch

  • Afternoon Session: Designing a Garden as if the Earth Matters: Learn how to design and implement a garden the carbon smart way. Using Earth Harmony Farm and Sanctuary as a template, Erin Stack, manager of the Earth Harmony Farm, and Ricky will discuss how to ensure your garden is multi-functional, aesthetically pleasing, and ecologically integrated. Specific topics may include creating borders, designing habitats, reclaiming overgrown garden areas, and more.




About the Instructor:

Ricky Baruc is a 3-decade farmer and land artist. He is co-creator of Seeds of Solidarity in Orange, MA where he transformed marginal land into a vibrant, successful small farm that is nationally recognized for its no-till, regenerative methods.

Erin Stack started New Harmony Farm, a certified organic vegetable farm, five years ago. In the evolution of her original environmental, spiritual and community vision, the farm now shares the land with Earth Harmony Sanctuary, a non-profit dedicated to building community resilience in an era of profound environmental and social change by cultivating an intimate, healing relationship between humans and Earth.
