Only those who register in advance will be told how and where to attend this event.  An email will be sent to you with a link to the webinar.

Supplying real food to keep your family healthy is imperative, especially when you find yourself in a crisis, whether it's the loss of a job, a natural disaster, or a manmade emergency.  Even in the day to day, healthy food should be a priority and there's no better way to provide fresh, healthy food to your family than by growing it in your own garden.

Join this webinar to learn how to plan your garden to optimize your food production and thereby become less dependent on the modern food system with food producers that may be hundreds or thousands of miles away.

In this webinar, we will teach you:

How to plan and position a new garden plot

How to calculate the amount of space available using various gardening methods

How to use your last average frost date to plan your seed starting and transplanting

How to optimize the use of your available garden space to maximize production

How to use successive plantings to keep fresh produce coming all season long

How to plan to preserve the harvest and not waste any of your garden bounty 

The special guest speaker is Rob Wokaty, a veteran gardener who is creative in making the most of small spaces and affordable gardening implements.

Hosted by Jason Matyas, co-founder of the Beyond Off Grid project and lifelong gardener.

    The webinar ran a bit long but there was a lot of material covered. Lots of good content, especially good for someone new to gardening to consider.

    We need help with gardening. Last year our small garden was flooded, and then we had the extreme hit in August. The only thing that survived was my herb garden. Looking forward to ths seminar.

      Unfortunately we are a good distance from Jax. I hope to meet some locals who participate in our community garden for some encouragement. Thank you for the information.
