Finally, classes to learn about the permaculture plants used in edible forest gardens and food forests. In this September class you’ll explore one of the lower layers of a permaculture forest garden – fungi!
Permaculture edible forest gardens typically consist of at least seven layers – fungi, groundcovers, vines, herbaceous, shrubs, sub-canopy trees, and canopy trees. This class will empower you with the knowledge and confidence to effectively incorporate a tasty, functional species of fungi into your permaculture garden!
