Forest Garden Design Workshop
Backyard Orchards and Woodland Harvests
Food forests and forest gardening bring together the best ecological systems that allow us sustainable, low input, and high-yield harvests. Forests and woodlands exist in almost every climate to some extent. In temperate northern climates we have the best resources and environment for a wide selection of plants and trees. This forest gardening presentation will focus on site assessment, resilient plant systems, poly-culture design, and assembling the best species suited for each participant’s property.
