Farming In The City
Thursday February 5 - 7PM-9PMJordan High School Library6500 Atlantic Ave., Long Beach, CAParking is available at the north and south ends of campus on Atlantic, along with some street parking.

Curtis Stone (owner/operator of Green City Acres) will take you on a tour of his urban farming operation in Kelowna, BC in this two hour lecture. 

Starting the business in 2010, Curtis will demonstrate how he commercially farms on less than a half acre of land that he doesn't own, in the city. Starting the farm on a shoestring budget of $7000, he turned that investment into $22,000 his first year, and near doubled the profits and scale of the business for four years after.  
In this lecture, you'll get a front row seat into the day to day operations of his farm, also see how the social, ecological, and economic benefits of it have had a net positive impact in the neighborhoods he farms in.
There will be time for Q&A after the lecture.

At the door we are requesting a $10 donation to benefit the co-sponsors:  The LB Jordan Male Academy & Permaculture Voices
