1-Day Master Class with Curtis Stone - Roebuck Farm

  • Omata School New Plymouth 4310 New Zealand (map)

Operating as Green City Acres, utilising bikes as their main transport, Curtis Stone cultivates multiple micro-sites within the city of Kelowna, Canada, producing chemical-free food for a healthy restaurant and farmers market trade. He will describe how it's possible to farm on very small plots of land without the debt burden of a mortgage or the high capital expense of the infrastructure needed on bigger farms.

This will be the second time of having Curtis in New Zealand to help build the culture of local food and urban farming here. This one day event is a great introduction, while the four day field workshop will go into depth and detail on the topics listed here.

You will hear about strategic production techniques that focus on high value crops with short growth cycles as well as specialised and niche market streams such as restaurants, and co-operative CSA’s. You will also learn how to shave off two to three years of development time by learning from the mistakes that he made.
