Coming in 2022--Indigenous Farmers of the Americas
Western cultures have largely adopted input intensive agriculture, but there are farmers around the world who are actively growing their indigenous, genetically diverse varieties. More details coming soon.
Growing Modern Landraces
Joseph Lofthouse teaches how vegetable crops can adapt to thrive in any environment, without inputs or stress.
How Plants Use Endophytes
This course is taught by Dr. James White of Rutgers University. Guaranteed to change the way you save seeds, or consider nutrient deficiencies, nutrient density in crops, and disease resistance.
Monthly zoom calls will be there to support members in specific challenges or questions that come up throughout the course of the growing season.
Additional content will include follow up interviews of Dr James White, additional case stories of individual crops converted to landraces by Joseph Lofthouse.
New interviews and courses by new instructors covering various topics related to developing modern landraces.
Applied Landraces: Monthly interviews with members that are already breeding landrace crops, including photos and videos, and how their projects have evolved.
Plants have an incredible ability to adapt and overcome local challenges, when given the chance. This course will teach what you need to know to get started in developing your own disease and pest resistant, drought tolerant, and delicious varieties. You will get enough specific, actionable information for you to start selecting and encouraging what thrives in your ecosystem, without the normal inputs you are used to needing to keep plants healthy. Saving your own seeds will be less intimidating, and something that any gardener can feel comfortable doing.
At the end of the first year, you will have adapted to a new mindset, saved seed from the best plants, be familiar with the selection process for your chosen crop, and be ready to add additional crops the following year, if you want to.
By choosing either the (free) collaborator option, or with the $10/month subscription, you will have support throughout the year as you go through the process. This course and year long mentorship is guaranteed to forever change the way you think about gardening and farming.
