About the event

The long wait is finally over and we are super excited to invite Jean-Martin Fortier over to Sweden for the first time! 

For those of you who don't know him (yet), with over 20 years of experience, Jean-Martin (JM) Fortier has dedicated his career to developing, testing, and perfecting biointensive growing techniques on world-known farms such as Les Jardins de la Grelinette, the Ferme des Quatre Temps, and the Old Mill. As the author of the best-selling book “The Market Gardener”, which has sold over 200,000 copies, JM has become a renowned expert in small-scale, bio-intensive vegetable production. 

JM will be holding a lecture at SLU Alnarp on Sep 27 and running full day workshop the next day at The Culinary Farm, with Saba Nazarian, one of his former students from Canada who now farms and teaches here in the South of Sweden.
