There’s less than a week to go to become a Pop-Up Garlic Farmer!
Farmer Incubator‘s Pop-Up Garlic Farmers program is a 9 month beginner’s course in small scale farming. From March to November you can take a crop of garlic right through from seed to harvest and market with a load of learning experiences and farm tours across the year to teach you everything you’ll need to know.
Throughout the program, you’ll participate in 8 fantastic workshops where you’ll meet experienced farmers, visit established small-scale farms, and hear from experts across a diverse range of fields.
Over the 9 months you will work at your selected site with other PUG Farmers to cultivate and grow your garlic from seed to market using organic farming practices. Each site will have a FI Site Manager to support you each step of the way and a group of fellow Pop Up Garlic Farmers to share the experience with.
It’s a fantastic opportunity to make new friendships and invaluable networks. Plus you can sell your garlic at the end!
All seed garlic, compost, mulch and materials are included in the program fee.
PUGF starts Sunday 28 February and there’s 5 spots still available at Koroneos Farm in Keilor.
