What it takes to set up, maintain + advance a profitable market garden. Nestled in a valley our picturesque farm has become an international beacon for modeling the alliance between sustainable, traditional growing principles and modern innovations.

As a thriving bio-intensive market garden and restoration grazing farm, we focus on growing + locally direct marketing our own produce and regenerating pasture diversity with stock management.

We teach these principles through highly interactive on-farm activities based around our agrarian & market garden production cycles.

Over the two days of this workshop,​ Jodi Roebuck will share with you all that has been involved in establishing his market garden. The practical will cover all the initial building blocks for developing a site including aspect, planning + design, right through to implementation including bed preparation options, innovative hand-held​ tools, crop choices, propagation, harvesting and beyond.
