August 16-18, 2013

GROW BIOINTENSIVE®
Sustainable Mini-Farming

Three-Day Workshop

Denver, Colorado

This event has been cancelled.

Over time, we have noticed that people are increasingly wanting to wait until the last few days to sign up for workshops.  The many logistics of preparing for and traveling a long distance for an event makes it challenging to accommodate this pattern.  Due to an insufficient number of registrants for the Denver, August 16-18. 2013 3-Day Workshop, we regret that it has been necessary to cancel the event. 

We recommend that people interested consider attending the upcoming November 1-3, 2013 3-Day Workshop in Willits, CA.  Check www.growbiointensive.org for full details.  Thanks for your good interest in GROW BIOINTENSIVE Sustainable Mini-Farming!

An Interview with
John Jeavons

John Jeavons' March 2010 interview with the PlanterTomato Blog:

"John, one of the questions I asked you was why Biointensive farming is so productive and successful. The answer you gave me was the best description of why natural methods of farming works I've heard.  It is a real eye opener for anyone who has not considered natural methods and I think people will really enjoy it."

-Mark Delman, author of the PlanterTomato Blog,
on his interview with John Jeavons.
