Market Gardening

Market gardening is the commercial production of vegetables, fruits, flowers, and other plants, on a scale larger than a home garden, yet small enough that many of the principles of horticulture can be applied. It is oriented toward local direct marketing, such as farmers markets. The Market Gardening course consists of nine classes, which together cover the different aspects of the design, startup, and operation of a successful, sustainable market gardening business.
