My class this Saturday:

Urban Farmsteading 101:   This intense class addresses some of the key points of a way of life I've embraced to varying degrees since 1984 that has allowed me food independence and freedom from debt for years. The class handout features 15 topics but  several more will be covered. This is NOT a gardening class but one about fashioning, in steps, a way of living more fully and freely based on gardening. Each student will be given two packs of unusual food crops seeds, one for the summer season now upon us, and the upcoming winter season. I've taught this very well received class a few dozen times the last few years and folks tell me it over-delivers, so DO bring a note pad and pen. Class times are 11 AM until 1 PM this Saturday, with a 30 minute Q & A session if needed. I am asking $20 per student. My address is:  3212 West Paxton Avenue  Tampa FL 33611 If you have questions feel free to call me at:   813 839 0881.  John


  1. Finally I come across someone in the Tampa Bay area that is interested in the same thing I am interested in. I have a small vegetable garden area but I am looking to expand it. I would love to attend one of your classes but I am at the moment out of work. I look forward to reading more from you. :)

  2. Thanks for the kind comments Loretta. Check here now and then and I hope you find work soon!
