Historic Lewes Farmers Market Announces a Market Grower Conference

The Historic Lewes Farmers Market is pleased to announce a full day workshop on Friday, February 2, from 9 am to 5 pm, at the Lewes Public Library for small farmers, market gardeners and growers.  They are excited to bring to you, Ben Hartman, the author of The Lean Farm (2015), winner of the prestigious Shingo Award, and The Lean Farm Guide to Growing Vegetables (2017).  Ben will discuss how to apply the lean system on any farm to increase efficiency and profits with less work.
