We are excited to host an Organic Farming Workshop for the Catawba Farm and Food Coalition! The Catawba Farm and Food Coalition facilitates and supports the development of a secure and sustainable food system in Chester, Fairfield, Lancaster, Union, York Counties and the Catawba Indian Nation.
During the workshop you will visit the farm to learn more about our organic growing practices from the one and only, Shawn Jadrnicek!
Shawn has nourished his interest in sustainability through work as an organic farmer, nursery grower, extension agent, arborist, landscaper, and manager of Clemson University's Student Organic Farm. From his earliest permaculture experiments with no-till farming in the Santa Cruz Mountains to his highly functional bio-integrated designs in the Southeast, Shawn has learned how to cultivate food in a variety of climates and landscapes. He shares his creative solutions through teaching, consulting, design work, and his book.
