NEW MAY DATES Due to COVID 19!

Finally a class to learn about the permaculture plants used in edible forest gardens and food forests. Begin to integrate these plants into your own garden. In May you’ll explore the lower layers of a permaculture forest garden – fungi, groundcovers, and vines!

Permaculture edible forest gardens typically consist of at least seven layers – fungi, groundcovers, vines, herbaceous, shrubs, sub-canopy trees, canopy trees. Over the course of four months, learn about the plants commonly used within each layer including varieties, care and maintenance, ecology, best application, harvesting, and uses. For each layer we’ll discuss 15-40 plants empowering you with the knowledge and confidence to effectively incorporate a full range of tasty, functional species into your permaculture garden!
