2018 Making 1000's of Plants! How to make free perennial flower, herb, and fruit plants - Group classes only
This workshop is only being offered on-demand. If you'd like a quote to schedule a group lesson, please contact us. We can host the class at our farm, or bring it to your homestead/location.
What will I learn in the workshop?
This is a pretty unique workshop! It seems no-one has classes on the topic of propagation from cuttings and more. There are a lot of resources on line, however, local timing within the seasons is everything. We will share with you our method of timing our plantings, crop protections, and harvesting veggies and herbs ALL YEAR LONG!
This is designed to be a hands-on workshop. You'll get to pick up tools and materials, ask questions, and see the entire process. We are dedicated to sustainable organic practices. We could add this in the title of each class, but its easier to just say all of our classes ONLY teach organic practices.

- Make dozens, 100's or even 1000's of plants for your homestead, to give to friends/family/clubs, to sell for profit
