Keynote Address Synopsis: Farming in the city
Workshop Synopsis: From Lawn to Productive Mini-Farm
Curtis Stone is the owner of Green City Acres, a commercial urban farm based out of Kelowna, BC. In this workshop, he’ll walk you through the process in which a 2000 square foot lawn can be converted to a productive mini farm. He’ll discuss the technical process of conversion, and the economics of production. This talk will be useful for anyone who is curious about how much food can be harvested from an average lawn space or anyone who is interested in commercial urban farming. Curtis will demonstrate that your average lawn can be a considerable source of revenue, generating $18,000, or a significant source of food for the community.
