Or (SIX-ONE-ZERO). THREE-ZERO-EIGHT. FOUR-ONE-THREE-EIGHT.
Join author and educator Eric Toensmeier and friends for a hands-on and fun-filled weekend of Edible Forest Gardening (EFG) - gardens which mimic the structures and functions of natural ecosystems while producing food and other products, with an emphasis on low-maintenance perennial crops. Our learning and design exercises will be informed by our site, a homestead rich in gardens, young food forests and a plant nursery specializing in native and permaculture species regeneratively grown.
We’ll dive deeply into EFGs by designing and installing our own polycultures (which plants go together where?) under mature Paw Paw trees while discussing and experiencing specific plant species, useful natives for the Mid-Atlantic region, perennial vegetables, fruits and nuts, incorporating edible fungi, regenerative plant propagation, forest garden solutions for sunny and low-light conditions, micro-livestock and integrated fertility. Price includes Friday evening through Sunday courses, course materials, local and organic fare - including some rare permie plants - and a “Biochar BBQ.”
Eric Toensmeierhas studied useful plants and food forests since 1990. He is the author of Perennial Vegetables and co-author of Edible Forest Gardens with Dave Jacke. Both works have received multiple awards. Eric’s current research is on perennial farming practices that fight climate change by capturing carbon. His 1/10 acre garden has over 200 useful perennial or self-seeding species including 70 with edible leaves and 36 with edible fruit.
