The Market Gardener’s Tookit

By watching The Market Gardener’s Toolkit, current and aspiring farmers will gather valuable insights about many growing essentials.


| February/March 2017


Jean-Martin Fortier’s organic market farm in southern Quebec earns $150,000 in income per year off of just 1.5 acres of land. Notably successful on this scale for the past decade, Fortier has become a mentor and educator for other farmers who want to make a sustainable living selling fruits and vegetables grown on small plots of land.

After publishing a popular book on the topic, The Market Gardener: A Successful Grower’s Handbook for Small-Scale Organic Farming, Fortier’s latest educational effort comes in the form of a new film called The Market Gardener’s Toolkit. The 80-minute real-life account, which was filmed over the course of a full growing season, is packed with advice about how to successfully handle day-to-day operations on a small-scale vegetable farm. About 1,800 people contributed to a crowdfunding campaign to make the documentary project possible.

By watching The Market Gardener’s Toolkit and learning from Fortier’s real-life experience, current and aspiring farmers will gather valuable insights about many growing essentials, including:

• Creating an efficient design for your market garden.

• Running a seed starting nursery.

• Finding long-term success with minimal tillage and low-tech hand tools.
