Farmer Tony and wife Hillery will be speaking about their microgreen business at the April gathering of Friends of Real Food.
Intensive Indoor Microfarming – Growing nutrient dense food in your living room for health and profit Speakers: Farmer Tony and Hillery Farrell
Farmer Tony is a 2012 graduate of Growing Power’s Commercial Urban Agriculture program and has also completed Victory Garden Initiative’s Food Leader and Urban Permaculture Design Certification programs. Tony has conducted a variety of small scale trainings on high intensity organic farming techniques both locally and internationally. Tony’s wife Hillery owns the business they started together, Farmer Tony’s Mission Greens. They were featured on WUWM Radio’s Lake Effect program as the leading food story on Thanksgiving Day, and the story of Tony’s international work has been published as a series of articles in The Milwaukee Times Weekly Newspaper.
Tony and Hillery have proven that it is within everybody’s reach to start their own profitable urban farming business at home which generates enough income to earn a living and takes up only 60 square feet of space. Learn why and how they have done this, how they plan to help local job-seeking youth become microgreen business entrepreneurs, their global aspirations to end world hunger, and most importantly how you can start your own microgreen production business in your home to eat healthy and earn a living from it.
This event is free and open to all who are interested in the local food system.
