Description from Possible Media
An educational film in which small-scale organic farmer, educator and author Jean-Martin Fortier shares the tools and techniques used on his highly productive 1.5-acre farm. From soil preparation to strategies on dealing with insect pests, discover how this micro-farm manages to generate $150,000 in sales annually without the use of a tractor or any heavy machinery.
Filmed over an entire growing season in Quebec’s beautiful Eastern Townships, The Market Gardener’s Toolkit offers an unprecedented insight into the daily operations of the farm, from seeding to transplanting, from weeding to harvesting.
No matter the scale of your project, whether a small urban farm or a full-scale commercial market garden, this film will offer valuable information and help make your operation more efficient and profitable.
