Market Garden Tour 2016

February 6, 2016 - February 7, 2016

$15.00 – $40.00

Market Garden Tours are a great way to inspire and inform. The producers who open up their properties are passionate about organic food production. Visiting producers not only inspires it can knock years of costly mistakes from any venture. Hearing from someone who’s already been there and made the mistakes is invaluable. Match that with ideas on how to navigate organic certification, tools and techniques to increase efficiency, market garden layout, storage, harvesting and more.

This year we have a mix or certified and uncertified growers and a diversity of production from both sides of the river. Due to the geographical extent of this years properties we’ve broken it up into two days. Saturday on the Eastern Side of the river and Sunday on the Western.

You can choose to go to either one or both days.
