Miraculous Abundance: How to Grow a Vegetable Garden for More Food than you ever Imagined! – Hands-On Experience

With the Forest Gardener & Wild Nutritionist Shantree Kacera

Take a moment to consider that 50% of Americans were farming in 1880. Now less than 2% of the nation is employed in agriculture.
From another perspective, in 1945, Americans grew 45% of their food in their backyard gardens. Now we grow 0.1% of our food in our backyards.

April 25 – June 6, 2024

Growing more food than you ever thought possible on less land than you ever imagined is easily achieved and demonstrated through small-scale, high-yielding, all-organic regenerative gardening methods. This is a hands-on experience!

This 7-part series will cover and offer practical protocols from Shantree’s 50-years of research and accomplishments in regenerative gardening.

The Living Centre began as a homestead in 1983, organically transitioning into the educational centre it is today. We share how to sustain ourselves and grow the most nutrient-dense food and medicines possible. We have created a regenerative model that will carry us into a post-carbon future without the need for chemical fertilizers to maintain soil fertility.

Today, the centre produces a vast diversity of vegetables, berries, fruit, nuts and herbs using a mix of permaculture, bio-intensive forest gardening and natural ecological practices. It is a well-established permaculture educational centre and an apothecary clinic
