The design of the natural world is simply incredible. The law of nature is abundance, so let's take this divine design and apply it to our food production systems. This workshop will be a brief introduction to the concept of edible food forest gardens and how polycultures can be used to design pest-resistant, water-conscious, self-fertilizing, and low maintenance food production systems emphasizing native plants. Participants will receive a handout with the basic principles of polyculture design and practice designing a food forest. This workshop is designed from a presentation by the leading permaculturist and plant expert Eric Toensmeier (co-author of Edible Forest Gardens) that was given at a 9-day intensive Integrated Social and Ecological Design course hosted at Woodbine Ecology Center. Presented by David Pinto and Casey Hanebuth of Growing Project and FoCo Cafe.
