PROFITABLE URBAN FARMING
with CURTIS STONE
Is it possible to make a good living on less than an acre of land?
Learn how you can farm on just a quarter acre of land and make $50K, even $100K. Convert your lawn--or your neighbor's lawn--into a considerable source of revenue for you as well as a significant source of food for your local community. It’s possible to farm profitably on a small land-base when you focus on how you farm, what you grow and where you sell.
Curtis Stone is the farmer and owner of Green City Acres, a commercial urban farm in Kelowna, BC. Since 2010, he has successfully farmed multiple urban lots in the city's downtown, and will demonstrate how you can farm on very small plots without the debt burden of a mortgage or the high infrastructure expenses that most farms need.
The Farmers Guild teams up with Permaculture Voices to bring you TWO special events!
