It's that time of year again.  The Grow Your Own Food Workshop is about to begin and tickets are available now.  Here's everything you need to know.


Here's a direct link to the official page where you can learn all about the workshop and see a video from the team explaining everything you need to know about it: Grow Your Own Food Workshop
Jump to the registration page here: Register Here!

The GYOF Workshop team has asked us to share their message with you:

If you’re like me, you want to get the most out of your garden this year, so let’s grow together.

I’m so excited to about The Grow Your Own Food Workshop, because the focus of this workshop is not only to educate but also to support you.

No, no one will come to your garden and help you pick hornworms off your tomatoes, but we will help you figure out what to do about them once you have them. I’m talking about the kind of support like when you used to pick up the phone and call your mom, to ask her how to tell if something in the fridge has gone bad. Remember? She asked you how old it was, what it smelled like, and maybe what it tastes like….:) Then she just knew and told you exactly what to do. That’s the kind of support I’m talking about!

We have a special Facebook group where you can ask ANYTHING. We also have a community manager to keep it a safe, encouraging, fun place to get help with your growing.

Oh, and there are over 15 expert gardeners hosting FREE classes! Then if you get the paid option you get 30 more videos on top of that! Is that valuable? Sure, knowledge is great, having access to important information is necessary for success.

But what you DO with that knowledge is even MORE important!

So this workshop is for you if you are a DOER!

THE GROW YOUR OWN FOOD WORKSHOP!

...we’re not going to just TALK about it! We’re gonna DO it!

The best part is that the tickets are FREE but only for a limited time! Sign-up NOW because you don’t want to miss it!

I think it's awesome when you can get so much for free. That's a rare thing nowadays. And, these folks are covering a ton of food growing topics. I really wish I could view these presentations, but my internet is way too slow to get to watch videos. What I think would be super cool is if Permie friends here who have registered for the presentation could post on this thread after watching and let me know what you thought.

The free videos, of which I think there were two/day, were really more overviews of whatever the video presenter was talking about. Perhaps the paid for videos get more in-depth, but I would not have taken the chance to find out. For example, the video on seed saving talked about the different types of seeds there are - heirloom, hybrid, GMO- and why it is a good idea to save ones from the plants one grows. That's about it. I found the presentations just touched the surface of the concepts without any in-depth information. I think it was geared to a beginner that knew nothing, or very little about gardening to get them somewhat familiar with the concepts of raised bed gardening, vermicomposting, etc., but nothing at all in-depth or a true how-to. I found myself not watching more than a minute or two of each video and toward the end of the week, not at all anymore (and I am a beginner gardener as far as actually implementing all the things I have learned through reading and video watching over the last couple of years, just not that much of a beginner :-)). With your level of gardening experience, I don't think you missed out on learning anything new whatsoever.

It looks like the course and videos will be re-opening May 16th.  There will be a discounted pre-sale for a week ahead of the second release.  I'd like to hear from folks who've purchased the course.  What are your thoughts?
