In the time of self-isolation, The Urban Farm team is now offering free, daily online classes, giving locals the chance to take this time to learn something new. These free classes are the Urban Farm’s way of using their expertise to give back to the community and help ease stress in this time of uncertainty and social distancing.
Viewers can join urban farmer Greg Peterson each weeknight at 5 p.m. PST and on Saturday and Sundays at 9 a.m. PST for an hour-long lecture followed by a Q & A. Their teaching team will cover topics including: Jump Start Your Spring Garden, Introduction to Permaculture, How to Grow Great Soil, Edible Weeds 101 and so much more.
Plus, there will also be movement, yoga and breathing techniques offered throughout the month to support greater well-being. The Urban Farm U chat room will be open to connect with people from around the world who are also learning how to grow their own groceries.
Best of all, kids are invited to learn as well. The Urban Farm podcast also offers over 550 interviews with experts that are free to listen to and explain how to grow everything. The garden-based education and podcasts were created to help get kids involved and to encourage families to spend time together outdoors and teach children gardening skills that nourish the body and mind.
