Come Plant a Forest of Food at Pearlstone!

Introduction to Permaculture: Food Forest Design and Planting

Join us Sunday April 26, 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.

What’s a Food Forest? Food forests are a reforestation strategy that uses edible plants to mimic a healthy forest.

Why do we need Food Forests? Forests are incredibly productive communities that organize and self-maintain without tillage, chemicals, weeding, mowing, and often without any human work at all.  Humans have ancient wisdom of stewarding forests for sustenance.

Planting a food forest is a modern permaculture strategy to grow food with maximum ecosystem benefit and minimum work – the way only a forest can.

Pearstone’s Chief Stewardship Officer Greg Strella and Perennials Manager Perri DeJarnette will offer an introduction to food forest concepts and design followed by a hands-on workshop to planting a ¼ acre food forest.   You’ll also learn about opportunities to grow your skills like Pearlstone’s Permaculture Design Certificate Course featuring Practical Permaculture author Dave Boehnlein.

Cost: $45 per person
