INTRODUCTION TO EDIBLE FOREST GARDENS

Sunday, May 5th 9:00 AM—5:00 PM


REDESIGNING YOUR YARD for Perennial Food Production


Explore how to transform your conventional yard into a productive, multi-season garden modeled on the ecosystem found naturally in the forest. Edible forest gardens produce delicious food through a combination of trees, shrubs, herbs, vines, groundcovers and fungi. Small-group design exercises will give you the tools to create productive harvests and positive relationships between plants in your forest garden. Find inspiration from contemporary and historic examples of easy-care perennial food plants. Come prepared for hands-on experience in the design and installation of a small food forest garden appropriate for an urban or suburban setting.

Workshop space is limited, so sign up today!

Because these workshops are being held at a private residence, full location details (including address) to be provided upon registration/payment here at Eventbrite.
