This corporate manager turned small-scale farmer shows that small-scale farms are a viable option to anyone looking to start growing food. Through experiences on his own family’s one-acre farm, Hartman teaches the lean principles that were developed out of Japan’s automobile industry in order to maximize efficiency with less work. He will teach attendees to work smarter, not harder.
