About the Challenge
Annette Cottrell has pulled together a years worth of urban farming challenges, with each challenge having three levels of difficulty so people can either try something new at a slow pace, or dive in deeper into something they’ve already tried.
The challenge will take place starting in February and will continue for a year. Twelve months, eleven challenges and one reflection month, all on your schedule and at your level of ease.
For example for the month of February the challenge is on soil building. It’s too early to garden outdoors in most parts of the country but we can ready our soil. You’ll learn about worm bins, green manures, composting, biochar and amendments with some fun prizes thrown in for random winners.
Annette has rounded up some wonderful bloggers to help host monthly challenges too!
