Event Description

Food production and ecology come together in the permaculture concept of a food forest. Using nature as our template, these intentional ecosystems offer an abundance of food, medicine, habitat, and so much more. Please join us for this workshop and learn how you can apply permaculture principles in a high-yielding orchard with diverse understory and minimize your work over time. Learn design strategies for creating guilds, smooth succession, and ease in harvest. Attract wildlife and grow plants that create self-renewing fertilitiy for your garden.

This workshop will discuss the permaculture concept of Food Forests. We will discuss species selection, community dynamics, various methods of implementing a Food Forest for the home landscape. We will spend the afternoons with hands-on work in the Food Forest to implement some of the techniques discussed.

Hi Kelda!  Have a great Food Forest Weekend at Wild Thyme Farm!

Will there be any folks from Skagit or Whatcom county attending?

I'm busy planting seeds, trees, and creating a new hive-home for honeybees!
