Tours of Biointensive Mini-Farm Garden Site(s)

COVID regulations permitting, we will hold one 5- to 6-hour garden tour at Victory Gardens for Peace GROW BIOINTENSIVE Mini-Farm in Mendocino, CA on Sunday, May 2, 2021. These tours give a good introduction to GROW BIOINTENSIVE® sustainable mini-farming, what our practical research site is accomplishing, and how our sustainable method relates to world agriculture. 

Tours  include participant introductions; a discussion of the overall world challenges that humankind faces in the areas of soil, food, and nutrition;  an exploration of the connection between thinking globally and acting locally; a tour of the garden and discussion of several crops in particular; and 30-minute mini-classes on double-digging, composting, seed propagation, sustainable home garden crops, and  cooking with solar ovens given by staff, apprentices and interns.

The tour begins at 10 AM and end at approximately 4 PM.

The registration fee is $25 per person. It is $15 for members or those who join at registration or make a $20 or more donation with registration. Tour fees are not tax-deductible . Please pre-register as soon as possible (2 months ahead is best); space is limited.
