Food forest workshop

Learn how to design and implement your own food forest or help someone else with theirs

What is a food forest?

A food forest is a designed perennial agriculture system that mimics a forest edge ecosystem, giving you a more stable, energy efficient and productive food system.

What is in the workshop?

  • Understand the set of principles and concepts to keep in mind while designing your sustainable food forest.

  • Put these principles and strategies into practice with a site visit (choose between a smaller backyard scale site or something rural and larger scale).

  • Within small groups create a site plan for a future food forest.
