The Might of Tiny Gardens with Acadia Tucker

May 20, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT


Cultivating your own food is a meaningful way to promote resilience in your household and, by sharing your knowledge— along with the fruits and vegetables of your labors—with neighbors, it can do the same for your community. But what if you don’t have a yard?

Container gardening allows just about anyone to grow a decent amount of food, no backyard required, and leads to many benefits. While growing food in pots may not do much to mitigate climate change like cultivating in backyard gardens, it can help us adapt to it by building stronger communities, supporting local pollinators, and expanding the reach of organic, regenerative agriculture.

In this session, Acadia Tucker talks about the tools and instructions needed to grow your own tiny victory garden both indoors and out. One that can supply you with as much, or as little, food as you’d like, grown in a way that helps the planet and build more resilience into your life.

Participants will receive a code to get 20% off on Acadia Tucker’s gardening books.

About Acadia Tucker Before becoming an author, Acadia started a four-season organic market garden in Washington State inspired by farming pioneers Eliot Coleman and Jean-Martin Fortier. While managing the farm, Acadia grew 200 different food crops before heading back to school at the University of British Columbia to complete a Masters in Land and Water Systems. She lives in Maine and New Hampshire and grows hops to support locally sourced craft beer in New England, when she isn’t growing food in her backyard, or dining room. She is also an Ambassador for The Rodale Institute on regenerative agriculture. Her other books are Growing Perennial Foods: Raising resilient herbs, fruits & vegetables, and Growing Good Food: A citizen’s guide to climate victory gardening.
