Food Forest Design & Planting
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
