It is with great delight that I can now let y'all know that we're bringing Jean-Martin Fortier to teach a one day market gardening masterclass at the Hobart City Farm.
Hailing from Quebec, Canada, Jean-Martin is the author of award wining book The Market Gardener and along with his wife, Maude-Hélène Desroches, runs Les Jardins de la Grelinette, an internationally recognized 10-acre micro-farm. With only 1½ acres cultivated in permanent beds, the farm grosses more than $100 000 per acre with operating margins of about 60 per cent, enough to financially sustain his family. The focus at la Grelinette has been to grow better, not bigger, in order to optimize the cropping system, making it more lucrative and viable in the process.
The workshop is on Tuesday 1st March, 9am - 5pm
