“Grow better, not bigger” Workshop Series with Jean-Martin Fortier

Perennia, in cooperation with ACORN and Grow-A-Farmer, are pleased to host organic farmer, Jean-Martin Fortier in Nova Scotia on July 27th and 28th. Jean-Martin’s low tech, biointensive approach provides the foundation for a philosophy of “Grow better, not bigger”.  The workshop is geared to those looking to increase their profitability per acre and will prove invaluable to new entrants limited by land and capital.
We are also fortunate to partner with Abundant Acres (David and Jen Greenberg) and the Bethany Garden (farmers-in-residence Mike Overmars and Colleen Freake) to help host the workshops.  JM will be able to demonstrate the BCS equipment and his methodology as outlined in his best-selling book, The Market Gardener.

Please register as soon as possible, participation is limited to only 50 per location.  You can call Perennia at (902) 678-7722 or 1-877-710-5210 (toll-free) or register online at (Please note that when you register on-line click the Production tab and then scroll down to see the “Grow better not bigger”  and remember to choose the location you want….Centre Burlington or Antigonish).

 Lastly, early registrants will be entered into a draw to win prizes from McGinley’s (your local BCS dealer in Truro) and Johnny’s Selected Seeds.
