Suppose someone came up to you on the street and said they knew how you
could grow vegetables for your family and 32 others on 1/4 acre of land
with a capital outlay of $300 for tools- all this for only a small fee.
Just give them the money and they'll show you. My reaction would be to
keep my hand on my wallet and slowly back away from someone who is
obviously a con man or crazy.
Well, as unbelieveable as that sounds, we do just that here on top of
Walden Ridge. And we teach others for a small fee. Read on:
Walden Farm will be offering workshops on Biointensive gardening and
farming this summer. Workshop participants spend half the time in
classes and the other half learning hands-on applications for the soil
and plant relationships that are taught.
The Gardening Workshop is Fri evening, June 5 and all day Sat & Sun,
June 6 & 7. This is an introduction to Biointensive methods and gives
participants a working knowledge of the integrated system of organic
production we use here on the farm. The knowledge gained at this
workshop is useful for those wishing to grow their own vegetables or
start a small market garden. Cost is $110.00
The Farming Workshop will be held Mon- Fri, June 22 thru 26. This is a
more in depth look at the scientific knowledge required for high
production in commercial farming or for educators. It also includes
information on planning, record keeping and marketing. Cost is $250.00
Biointensive refers to an integrated system of organic food production
that grows the largest amount of food in the smallest space while
increasing the fertility of the soil. Applications range from backyard
gardens using hand labor to large scale production using machinery.
Hands-on sessions will be held at Walden Farm, a suburban mini-farm 15
minutes from downtown Chattanooga, TN. We produce vegetables for a 32
family CSA on 1/4 acre using the techniques taught in the workshops.
