The Food Forest

What is a Food Forest?
A permaculture forest garden mimics the architecture and beneficial relationships of a natural forest. Food forests are not ‘natural’, but are designed and managed ecosystems that are very rich in biodiversity and productivity.

Food Forests:
• Produce food
• Produce forage for
• insects, pollinators, chickens,and song birds
• Create wildlife habitat
• Nuture our bodies through herbal teas and concoctions
• Create beauty and a sense of well being

Join us for this hands-on workshop. Learn the biology and fundamentals of proper fruit tree pruning then put your new skills into practice on the terraced food forest located at the Heritage Farm. Participants should bring gloves and pruners. Some will be provided but only in limited numbers.

Space is limited, please call 487-8308 or email to reserve your spot
