Chris recently enrolled in an online course on how to start a profitable urban farm. It’s presented by Curtis Stone and Luke Callahan and based on Curtis’ urban farm setup in Canada. We heard about both of these guys via the Permaculture Voices podcast which we’ve been listening to for a few years now. And even though sometimes it can be so American (the music and intro for the Urban Farmer series is especially cheesy), the people the host Diego interviews are generally doing interesting stuff.
The course has a wealth of video material which explains, in detail, how to do things according to the Curtis method. It’s obviously been developed by people who understand how reading a book can give you the general gist of how to get going but sometimes the detail is lost. This is pretty handy when you’re a total beginner. Once we’ve worked our way through the material I’ll publish a review of the course and how we think it stacks up for punters in Australia.
With any luck we should be a bit more certain about what we’re actually doing (and where we’re living) in the next week or so and we can start playing in the dirt and growing things again. I’m really looking forward to that!
