Event Description

Crop Planning for Organic Vegetable Growers  – Two Part Webinar    

Dates: Thursday, December 5, 7:30pm-9:00pm, and Thursday, December 12, 7:30pm-9:00pm

This webinar provides a much-needed structure for figuring out how to make money on a market garden.  It hones in on the core issues of farm success: which crops to grow, when to plant them, and in what quantities.  Then it provides a logical, linear process for getting it all done, on time.  It sets out 11 steps, including:

  • Decide how much money you need to make;
  • Calculate how much of each veggie you have to sell to meet your financial goals;
  • Decide where you will sell;
  • Make field planting schedules to ensure you have the crops you need at the right time;
  • Generate greenhouse/seed starting schedules;
  • Fill out a seed order;
  • Make a field operations calendar;
  • Analyze profitability and refine your plans for next year.

NOTE: It will be helpful to have a copy of the Crop Planning for Organic Vegetable Growers book on hand.  Purchase your copy at
