Farmer Incubator’s Pop-Up Garlic Farmers program is back again!
PUGF is a 9 month beginners course in small-scale farming, filled with hands on workshops lead by specialists, delicious food and a bit of hard work, with the support of a tight knit community surrounding you that want to see you flourish and grow your farming powers.
Throughout the year you get 8 workshops on topics ranging from soil preparation to pest and disease management to marketing your product.
Alongside these workshops you will apply your new knowledge by growing a market garden scale organic garlic crop at one of 6 farms across Melbourne. The sites this year include Days Walk Farm (Keilor), Beales Road Farm (Greensborough), Heide Museum Kitchen Gardens (Bulleen), Wild Wren Farm (The Patch) and Wildwood Organics (Macedon Ranges).
You will get to know other aspiring farmers and develop valuable networks in the urban agriculture community. PLUS you get to sell your garlic at the end (or eat it!).
The course starts Saturday 26 February 2022.
