Food Forest Workshop
October 28, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm$85
Food production and ecology come together in the permaculture concept of a food forest. Using nature as our template, these intentional ecosystems offer an abundance of food, medicine, habitat, and so much more. Please join us for this workshop and learn how you can apply permaculture principles in a high-yielding orchard with diverse understory and minimize your work over time by enhancing the relationships in your system. Learn design strategies for creating guilds, smooth succession, and ease in harvest. Attract wildlife and grow plants that add to fertility for your garden.
This workshop will cover the permaculture concept of Food Forests. We will discuss;
- species selection
- community dynamics
- various methods of implementing a Food Forest for the home landscape
We will spend the afternoon with hands-on work in the Food Forest to implement some of the techniques discussed.
Instruction will include lecture, discussion, hands-on practicums, and handouts.
Vegetarian lunch and beverages are homemade from farm ingredients as the season allows and are included in the price of your reservation.
