Make Money as an Urban Farmer Workshop Presented by the Sustainable Commercial Urban Farm Incubator (SCUFI) program October 8 & 9, 2011, 8am - 6pm, Walnut Creek, California, at The Gardens at Heather Farm.
Featured Trainers: Curtis Stone of Green City Acres, and James Kalin of the SCUFI program - Curtis will share how in 2010 he used SPIN-Farming® to build a multi-lot 1/2 acre urban farm that in its 2010 six month first season grossed $20,000, and is on track to gross over $60,000 in his 2011 second season. James will share how a SCUFI trains farmers and helps them get money and land to set up their own commercial urban farms. He will also explain how your farm can make extra profits by integrating farm operations into the grounds, structures and systems of nearby buildings and businesses. He will also describe a new part of the SCUFI program that helps SCUFI participants get a farm home to rent or own as a sustainable commercial urban farmstead.
Saturday: Indoor lectures and demonstrations; Sunday: Outdoor hands-on business and field exercises
