urban farm school
Registration is closed for 2022 and will reopen in November 2022 for the next session
Join us for a session of Urban Farm School! Sasha Kanno and the Farm Lot 59 team have put all ( or most ) of our farming knowledge into a 6-week crash course of regenerative agriculture.
Your training manual is broken into 6 weeks of intense farming. You will learn how we do it at 2714 California Ave on a .5 acre plot. You will get dirty and learn how to visualize your project, operate, grow, prep beds, work in a greenhouse, build your soil, harvest, all of it.
We are sharing all our tool knowledge and resources with you so you can be successful in any garden/farm situation. Our farm is only a 1/2 acre but we grow in a diverse and holistic way using crop rotations, cover cropping, drip irrigation, and specialty tools designed for small spaces.
We will teach you how to map out your plot and figure out what, when, and how to grow annual vegetables, perennial flowers, tend a small orchard. We start everything in our greenhouse and also have a USDA-funded high tunnel.
Our model is scaleable to multi-acre diverse farming operations, or in a few raised beds or maybe you will find out farming is not for you. I'm excited to find out.
Do you want to grow produce for market? We can help you get started!
Get organized with your farm vision, learn budgeting, planning, seed purchases, seed starting, sales outlets and more!
You will learn how to grow on a small scale. Bed prepping, weed management, how to use small speciality tools, compost applications, irrigation, weed management and everything else we have learned along the way!
