Food Forest Design (Sustainable Design Series #2)


Interested in learning more about how exactly food forests work? This workshop looks at food forest design for use in gardens, woodlands, and orchards. It will cover the many uses of trees, from food to fuel, including how trees affect precipitation, water retention, wind, climate control, etc. Above ground and below, trees are full of wondrous, amazingly beneficial activity. This workshop will teach you how to best maintain a food forest for optimal production. These concepts can also be applied to a smaller garden area to create a thriving, multifunctional ecosystem. Hand outs will be provided and participants will make a “tree tea” to sample and enjoy during the workshop.

This workshop belongs to a two-part “Sustainable Design” series we are offering with instructor Sarah Orlowski on July 22. Sign up for both workshops at checkout and receive 15% off!
