Episode 6 from The Activation Podcast (101min). On this episode of the Activation podcast Derrick Broze speaks with farmer and activist Curtis Stone. Curtis is a farmer, author, speaker and consultant. His area of expertise is in quick growing, high-value annual vegetables for direct consumer market streams. His book, The Urban Farmer demonstrates organic intensive techniques with a focus on business and systems to streamline labor and production. He offers a new way to think about farming. One where the quality of life and profitability coexist.
Curtis’ farm, Green City Acres is located in Kelowna, BC, Canada, and was established in 2010. In an eight-month growing season, the farm generates over $75,000 per year on only one-third of an acre. This is done by specializing in a select group of high value, quick growing crops that allow for multiple plantings in the same beds as well as calculated intercropping strategies. The farm has been recognized internationally, as a flagship example of how profitable and productive urban agriculture can be.
