Richmond Farm School
The Richmond Farm School has been revamped, redefined, and is ready for the 2018 growing season.
This 9-month, one day a week program has been designed to focus on small-scale, high production, cost efficient, lean urban farming.
Throughout this hand-on program, you will learn how to grow within an urban environment such as front lawns, backyards, and small plots of land up to approximately 1/4 acre. Production will be focused on vegetables that are high in demand and value, have a quick turn around and are relatively easy to manage. Lean urban farming focuses on efficient and cost-effective practices, minimal infrastructure and low capital investments.
The Richmond Farm School is a fully integrated, innovative, and is highly experience based program. Immerse yourself in Farm School and learn everything from soil health, plant life cycles, vegetable production, water and compost management to ergonomic farming practices.
