City Farming:  A How-To Guide to Growing Crops & Raising Livestock in Small Spaces

Farming in cities and small spaces is becoming increasingly popular, but it has its challenges. City Farming addresses the problems the urban farmer might face and turns them into creative solutions. It assists the new grower to gain expert understanding of how to create a production urban farm, as well as helping established farmers to troubleshoot and discover new ways to bring their space into greater harmony and production. The content is organised by themes of importance to urban farmers - sun and heat, water usage, seasonal production, spatial planning, soil quality and usage, propagation and breeding, pests and diseases, farming under time constraints, sustainability and community initiatives.

Seed School Online

Now more than ever we need to take control of our food and seeds, in order to safeguard our health and the health of our communities. 
 
The best place to start is with the garden in your own backyard. Imagine your garden as a fine wine getting better and better with age. With the Seed School Online system, each year you can have more tomatoes, spicier arugula, and crispier cucumbers to share with friends and family.  You will learn to look for the strongest and best tasting plants in your garden. You can choose seeds for amazing taste, insect and disease resistance, or drought tolerance…the sky’s the limit when choosing seeds from plants that performed outrageously well in your garden.
 
These are just a few examples of the characteristics you will learn to look for from the plants in your garden and then harness so that you can produce the same (or better!) results year after year.
 
Over seven prerecorded online classes, we will explore some inspiring and enlightening topics. Each class will be released one week at a time for 7 weeks, but you can dive into them at your own pace.
With our step-by-step guidance it won’t be long before you’re co-creating (with the seeds) your own version of a resilient garden.
