Tours of Biointensive Mini-Farm Garden Site(s)

 

The Jeavons Center

A tour of The Jeavons Center Mini-Farm will be held on Saturday, July 30, 2022.
The Jeavons Center is Ecology Action's global headquarters, and is located in the mountains outside Willits CA (map provided when you register) and the tour begins at 9 AM and ends at approximately 2 PM.

The tour is 5 hours long and gives 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. Included: a discussion of the overall world challenges that humankind faces in the areas of soil, food, and nutrition; a tour of the garden and discussion of several crops in particular; and several 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 registration fee is $25 per person ($15 for members or those who join at registration). Tour fees are not tax-deductible. Space is limited. We welcome children ages 10 or older, however children not involved in the tour may find the event difficult, so please check if you want to bring them. Please leave your pets at home. Bring your own lunch to enjoy in the garden.

Carpooling is encouraged as parking is limited. We recommend that you bring a bag lunch, hat and water bottle. Please wear hiking boots or shoes with good tread as our garden is located on a steep hill and visitors will walk the equivalent of 25 flights of stairs to reach our garden.

Our Willits site is a working Research Mini-Farm, and our busy staff is not able to accommodate drop-in visitors. The site is only open to the public on scheduled dates and by appointment.

Registration is open now, and closes on July 28!
