In this recording from our live event held on April 4, 2022, The Backyard Farm Company shares how to organize a beautiful backyard farm, incorporating all the important crop layout considerations: sunlight, height, harvest times, successions, spacing, crop rotation, quantity, companion flowers, and much more. If you’ve ever felt like you’re gardening without a plan, unsure of where each plant should go or how much space it needs, this program addresses those questions and will have you planting with confidence.

The Backyard Farm Company is a progressive, female-led urban farming company made up of professional farmers and landscape designers who have been empowering people to grow their own food since 2012. Farmers Christiana, Amy, Liz, and Olivia (Spannocchia Farm Intern Alum, Fall '16) have a combined 36 years of experience growing organic food on large scale, small intensive, and educational farms. They’ve created this class to make growing food at home possible and fun for everyone.
