Interview With The Market Gardener

Another fantastic interview by Curtis Stone, this time he’s with Jean-Martin Fortier the author of The Market Gardener. Its basically a discussion about his lifestyle growing food for a living and the ups and downs of running of an intensive organic and profitable small scale farming enterprise. His book comes very highly rated by many people in the Horticulture/Urban Farming world, I’m going to be buying it my self as soon as the funds become available. I loved this interview, very enlightening.
