*Online* Food Forests
About this Workshop
Many people are interested in growing their own food, especially with the onset of the COVID 19 pandemic. Food security no longer seems as certain as it has in the past. Planting a “food forest” can ensure harvest of tree fruits, nuts, herbal medicines and berries year after year, often increasing yields as trees mature. When planted using permaculture techniques, a food forest goes far beyond a conventional orchard, helping to sustain itself with biodiversity and other protective measures. BC is an ideal place in which to grow a variety of perennial food crops and even a surprisingly small space can accommodate an abundantly producing woodland.
