“Farming in the city”, Tijuana, Mexico

November 13, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Farming in the city

2 hour lecture with Q&A

 By Curtis Stone

 Synopsis

Curtis Stone (owner/operator of Green City Acres) will take you on a tour of his urban farming operation in Kelowna, BC. Starting the business in 2010, Curtis will demonstrate how he commercially farms on less than a half acre of land that he doesn’t own in the city. Starting the farm on a shoestring budget of $7000, he turned that investment into $22,000 his first year, and near doubled the profits and scale of the business for four years after. In this lecture, you’ll get a front row seat into the day to day operations of his farm, also see how the social, ecological, and economic benefits of it have had a net positive impact in the neighbourhoods he farms in.
