Event description

Description

Have you ever seen a food forest? Are you interested in growing your own food or want to replace your lawn with a more sustainable landscape? Do not miss out on the chance to tour 10 demonstration edible gardens fed by secondary water (roofwater and/or laundry-to-landscape greywater system) in Benicia and Vallejo!

Learn simple techniques that you can apply to your own yard to create a vibrant, food-producing ecosystem using water wisely.

Ask our food forest keepers questions, enjoy the gardens, be inspired and get ideas on how you can work these design principles into your own yard!
