Why Jump Start Your Urban Farm?
 .
The easy answer to this is to grow your own healthy, nutrient dense and very tasty food!  To do this we need a place to start, a jumping off point, a bit of a reset in the way we think.  In permaculture the first set of rules is (1) to observe, (2) then plan, (3) implement and (4) observe some more.  With a simple set of steps we can learn how to nurture our yards and grow our own food and build community.
  .
Jump Start Your Urban Farm is the culmination of over four decades of thought that started for me as a teenager in the mid 70’s, as I observed our food system and determined for myself that I believe our food systems is broken.  As a 7th grader I hand wrote a paper in pencil (remember it was the 70’s) on how we were over fishing the oceans.  How does a 14 year old know this?  To this day I do not know and someone at one of my lectures recently commented that Jacque Cousteau must have been one of my heroes.  WOW that was a moment of recognition.
 .
Fast forward to 2015, 40 years of playing in the food arena and being an advocate for permaculture and urban farming.  I have put all of it together in a cohesive conversation designed to shine a light on a new way of thinking, one that helps you reframe your world and make different choices.  I have developed many resources and experiences that I bring to you in this beginning class Jump Start Your Urban Farm!
 .
During our 4-week program you will meet other urban growers – some calling themselves urban farmers and find your own inspiration.  You will gain a new way of thinking and be able to plan your space to be a more sustainable and regenerative space.  No matter the size.
