Is it possible to make a good living on less than an acre of land? Learn how you can farm on just a quarter acre of land and make $50,000, or even $100,000 on half an acre. Curtis Stone is the owner/operator of Green City Acres, a commercial urban farm in Kelowna, BC. Since 2010, he has been successfully farming on multiple urban lots in the city’s downtown, and will demonstrate to you, that you can farm on very small plots of land without the debt burden of a mortgage or the high capital expenses of the usual infrastructure that most farms need.
