In this course, you will find all the information we would have loved to know and have access to when we started our market garden.
Learn from one of New Zealand's leading small scale organic market gardeners.
The information in this course is our most precious resource, and what enables us to yield over 9 tons of produce from a ¼ acre of land with gross sales of $100,000 of greens and vegetables a season.

Yotam Kay is a master gardener who loves growing plants and sharing his passion for it. He has been growing vegetables and teaching others how to do it since 2005. Yotam dedicated his career to learning about growing vegetables organically in a regenerative way, with the burning question "How much food can be grown in a small piece of land?". Which lead to establishing Pakaraka Permaculture market garden and educational centre in Thames, New Zealand with his partner Niva. Yotam studied Environmental science, holds a Diploma in Permaculture Design and is a certified Permaculture teacher. Yotam had been working on a wide range of projects before establishing Pakaraka Permaculture in 2014; leading community garden projects, establishing food gardens & sustainability programs in schools, to managing commercial organic gardens in New Zealand.
