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.
What could be more satisfying?
