Small Scale Agriculture and Gardening
The Alberta Soils Network is excited to present Small Scale Agriculture and Gardening, just in time for the 2017 growing season! Reclaim Farms is University of Alberta's 2016 Alumni Innovation Award Recipient.
Come listen to Ryan Mason, owner of Reclaim Urban Farm discuss the pleasures of small scale agriculture and gardening. Ryan will take you on a short journey of how his farm progressed including the failures, success, and what they are trying to accomplish before moving on to the functional aspects of the farm. Learn about the tips, tools and tricks that an urban farmer uses to grow food locally so that you can apply this in your own garden. Discuss the relevant opportunities for organic market gardening and the challenges associated with this, while dealing with multiple types of soil quality throughout the city and the lots they grow on. Bring your questions and prep your garden, spring time is coming and Ryan will knock your squash off.
