Edible Forest Gardening In A Nutshell: An Introduction
Sunday, April 21, 2013 9am – 1 pm $40-60 sliding scale
Edible Forest Gardening (EFG) is an effective way to design home scale gardens in our climate that mimic forest ecosystem structure and function, but grow food, fuel, fiber, fodder, fertilizer, “farmaceuticals,” and fun while we consciously apply the principles of ecology and permaculture. Join us for a hands-on skill-building experience in edible forest gardening. Learn to transform traditional lawn landscapes into abundant food-producing perennial forest gardens. Participants will learn the skills needed to get started at their own home or expand the abilities of a gardening business. We will get our hands dirty while we install and establish a new forest garden. Have you wanted to:
§ learn about Permaculture and/or EdibleForest Gardening?
