Learn how to produce food when there is no supply chain @ Cultivate in Jacksonville, FL.

Event Details

This class will cover how to create soil fertility with what is right on your own property or in the general vicinity of your garden rather than buying expensive and harmful fertilizers from the store. We’ll go over the “psychology” of plants and their ecological allies so that we can coordinate their energies for the greatest effect. When we are done, you should know what to do first to start a great, productive garden that will produce, healthy, tasty food all year long. Growing food shouldn’t be tough or expensive, you just have to get your brain wrapped around our relationship with natural energies. Informational booklet will be included.

Alexander Ojeda is devoted to the art of living without the conventional grid. The instability, costliness, pollution and inefficiency of the grid has always been a concern. Growing up in the 70s and 80s was wonderful, but it was tempered with the threat of nuclear war. As the decades passed, the concerns continued to grow. Today he is building an off-grid homestead and teaching permaculture. Still learning every day, he shares what he knows with all who are interested in trying it themselves.
