GROW BIOINTENSIVE Workshops offer an excellent opportunity to acquire a wealth of information on the most efficient gardening method we know. This information has been gathered from over thirty-five years of research, and is currently in use in over 130 countries around the world.
John Jeavons has been the Director of the GROW BIOINTENSIVE Mini-Farming program for Ecology Action since 1972. He is the author of How to Grow More Vegetablesand Fruits, Nuts, Berries, Grains, and Other Crops Than You Ever Thought Possible On Less Land Than You Can Imagine, the primer on sustainable Biointensive Mini-Farming, which is currently available in English, Spanish, German, French, Arabic, Hindi and Russian.
John says it is better to grow small fruits in grow tents. This frees up space. And for those who don’t have enough land a grow tent is excellent opportunity.
Vegetable can also be easily grow in a grow tent. However depending on the size of vegetables one must choose grow tent accordingly. For example, if you are growing a vegetable the size of your fist then 4×4 grow tent is best suitable. If the size of fruit or vegetable is larger then you need to opt for 8×8 grow tent or even 10×10 grow tent.
For those who find it difficult to buy and set up a grow tent, John recommends purchasing grow tent packages
A grow tent package comes with all the necessary kits. You don’t have to do anything. Just install the grow tent and start growing
