If you’re an apartment-farmer, Darren Butler is someone you should know about. Consulting Arborist, Ecological Designer, Sustainable Landscaping Specialist, and Teacher, Darren is master eco-gardener. Best of all, he wants to share his knowledge with you.
Darren has an exciting list of workshops coming up that will deepen the roots of your knowledge about all things organic gardening.
FarmApartment has arranged for Darren to lead a class in Small-Space Food Gardening on Saturday, February 27 at the Learning Garden in Venice. In this all-day course for apartment, condominium, and other urban dwellers who lack land, Darren will introduce methods for growing edibles in spaces as small as a windowsill. He will start with the basics and leave you with confidence to start your own apartment-sized farm.
