Back in February of 2014 I received a review copy of The Market Gardener by Jean-Martin Fortier. The book tells how Jean-Martin and his wife make a remarkably good income with a 1.5 acre market garden in Quebec, Canada. There aren't too many people in the world who make a remarkably good income from "farming" 1.5 acres!
Though I am not a market gardener, and I do not aspire to be a market gardener, I was inspired in my home gardening pursuits by the book. And I wasted no time in reviewing it. I think my review was the first internet review in the U.S. (the book was previously published in French for the Canadian market) and it is among my most read blog posts. You can read the review here: Farming 1.5 Acrres And Making a Good Living.
After reading the book, I've often thought it would be nice to see and learn more about Jean-Martin's approach to making a living on such a small section of land. So it was exciting to find out about the new documentary movie: The Market Gardener's Toolkit.
I bought a copy of the movie. I watched it. I enjoyed it. And I've decided that it would make for a great Planet Whizbang Giveaway....
There will be three winners in this giveaway. Each winner will receive a DVD copy of The Market Gardener's Toolkit.
If you have ever thought of making a living (or part of a living) by market gardening, or you know someone else who has this dream, you need to enter this giveaway for sure. And if you are just a person who loves to grow your own food, I believe you will also enjoy this documentary. Either way, you will come away from the film with a realization and appreciation for how much work goes into such an enterprise.
Check out this trailer for the film...
