Organic Growing Course 2016

Lynn has the perfect combination of experience and a scientific and academic background. The course was both practical and intellectual.

Although I am an avid gardener I learned a lot about growing food on a farm-sized scale. I got what I came for, and more.

I met awesome, inspirational people, and looked forward before every class to being surrounded by a beautiful farm while learning more about how to grow food. (And lunch was delicious every time!)

Whether you’re interested in becoming an full-time organic farmer or you just want to produce delicious, healthy food in your backyard, Lynn Pugh’s legendary Organic Growing course will teach you the basics so you can start growing sustainably. This year the course will move to a different format with the classroom component being on-line and the on-farm component as field experiences on the farm. The course is also being offered in individual segments, of 4 units each: Fundamentals of Organic Growing, Practices of Organic Growing, and Business of Organic Growing.

The on-line presentations and lessons will give you the fundamentals and then you can come to Cane Creek Farm where you will experience everything from seed starting to soil biology. It’s okay if you’re a total newbie!

And if you’re an experienced gardener, you’ll learn a lot too; Lynn teaches from the state’s first-ever organic curriculum, which she developed. You’ll also get to tour area farms and learn from other experienced farmers!

This winter the first course, Fundamentals of Organic Growing will start on Feb 27 with the field experiences on: March 5, 19, April 2, 16. The other two segments will follow with the same format.

More details are being finalized and will be posted soon. You will be able to sign up on-line for the course. If you have questions, contact Lynn at
