Edible Food Forest Gardens Workshop with Eric Toensmeier

Saturday, April 28th 10:00am-5:00pm: Introduction to Edible Food Forest Gardens

Sunday, April 29th 9:00am-5:00pm: Redesigning You Yard for Perennial Food Production

Explore how to transform your conventional yard into a productive, multi-season garden modeled on the ecosystem found naturally in the forest. Edible forest gardens produce delicious food through a combination of trees, shrubs, herbs, vines, groundcovers and fungi. Small-group design exercises will give you the tools to create productive harvests and positive relationships between plants in your forest garden. Find inspiration from contemporary and historic examples of easy-care perennial food plants. Come prepared for hands-on experience in the design and installation of a small food forest garden appropriate for an urban or suburban setting. Bring your own lunch.

Registration fee: $125 early registration (by February 29), $150 after February 29.

Eric Toensmeier has studied useful plants and food forests since 1990. He is the author of Perennial Vegetables and co-author of Edible Forest Gardens with Dave Jacke. Both books have received multiple awards. Eric’s current research is on perennial farming practices that fight climate change by capturing carbon. His 1/10th acre garden has over 200 useful perennial or self-seeding species including 70 with edible leaves and 36 with edible fruit. Eric will be assisted on Saturday by Aaron Guman, permaculture designer.
