Event description

Description

This is Day 3 of a public, hands-on installation workshop series at "Shalom" demonstration food forest garden. This is an opportunity to see a dead, barren front lawn transformed into a customized food forest based on permaculture design principles.

See the newly installed laundry-to-landscape greywater system and a simple roofwater catchment technique that you can do at home to capture those precious drops of water!

Topics Covered:

Planting a community of plants with multiple functions that support a healthy, diverse ecosystem.

Surface drip irrigation installation: Adding irrigation for young plants and water conservation.

Covering the food forest with free woodchips (mulch) to prevent water evaporation and improve soil health.

This installation includes a short lecture from a sustainable landscape expert and hands-on experience on how to build a food forest. A vegetarian lunch will be provided by the homeowner. Please bring hats, gloves, reusable water bottle and sunblock.

*Sponsored by the Solano County Water Agency.
