*Market Gardening with Lean: How to Earn a Comfortable Living with Less Waste and Work*

In this workshop, Ben Hartman, author of The Lean Farm and The Lean Farm Guide to Growing Vegetables, will explain powerful concepts from the Japanese lean system that prevent burnout and increase profits with less waste and work. The workshop is geared toward market gardeners, covering lots of production techniques and tips. However, the lean system is universal and the workshop will also explain efficiency techniques that farmers of any size and type can take home and immediately employ. Ben will provide examples of lean at work on Clay Bottom Farm, in northern Indiana, where he and his wife earn a comfortable living from 1/2 acre of cultivated land working less than 35 hours per week. All kinds of farms can benefit from these lean principles, not just market gardens!

Topics covered include:

Organizing workspaces with 5S
Genchi gembutsu (close observation) to precisely identify value
The 7 types of farm muda (waste)
Kaizen (continuous improvement) on a farm
How to set prices with lean
The lean system and worker management
Lean business management
Lean production of tomatoes, salad green, carrots, and more
