Managing Food Plots Workshop
Afternoon Session -
First in in the Managing Food Plots series from Fresh SPIN Farms, this event focuses Urban and Small Farmers on maximizing food value and productivity.
Held at Fresh SPIN Farms, next to the UC Davis campus, Ed Garrett leads a two hour seminar on intensive production techniques using demonstration areas on the farm to show layout and design of planting areas for maximum productivity, unique weed suppression techniques combined with organic production methods offering sustained yeilds over one pound per square foot, and includes discussion on crop and variety selection to promote program goals.
Who should attend?
- Managers of Community and Demonstration Gardens
- Food Bank managers and employees
- Farm to School coordinators
- Community Developers working on economic development and food security issues
- Food System Planners
- Urban Farmers
- Small Farmers
- Home and Master Gardeners
We have priced this introductory seminar to allow maximum participation of NGOs, Educators, Food System workers, and Students. While the information is geared towards production, project developers and managers will also benefit from discussion about theory behind production decissions and resolving conflicting demands placed on food plots in a local food chain.
Fresh SPIN Farms is an Urban Farm Training center being developed by long time area agriculturalist and graduate of the UC Davis International Agriculture Development program, Ed Garrett. Fresh SPIN Farms seeks to recover individual access to food production and training through a variety of local and regional initiatives.
