Create Your Own Food Forest!


Surround yourself by beauty, biodiversity and an abundance of food, medicine, fuel, building materials, and more through the ancient art of food forestry.
This workshop will take us through all the steps you need to create your very own urban or rural food forest: design, plant guilds and types, planting technique, succession,  soil fertility, low maintenance planning, and transitioning your yard from lawn or garden into a thriving food forest! All students will receive a master handout of plants for food forests in our bio-region.
Friday night will be in-class theory and Saturday will be hands-on as we install a small new food forest in the Cranberry community.

When: Friday July  27 6:00 – 9:00 pm & Saturday July 28, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm

Where: Cranberry Community Hall

Cost: $60.00 (subsidies available)
