Learn How-to Design an Edible Forest Garden (or Food Forest) Using Permaculture Principles
A forest garden is an integrated system of inter-planted, mutually beneficial trees, shrubs, perennial & annual plants that produces food, medicine, fibre and more. Come learn how to develop a practical strategy for creating more abundance (for yourself, your family, your neighbours and beneficial insects and birds) in any backyard – be it lawn, bush or even damaged land.
A class for all levels. The concepts learned can be adapted to a small urban backyard or to a larger rural acreage. The Forest Garden is carefully designed by using Permaculture principles.
