Facilitator: Trent Rhode
Date: Saturday September 17, 2022 from 2pm - 4pm
Summary: Join Trent Rhode of Living Landscapes for this standalone workshop for growers of any level with any amount of space. Learn the basics of designing edible ecosystems for landscaping, farms, homesteads, and mixed orchards. The art and science of creating edible ecosystems is as old or older than human civilization and involves designing and planting based on ecological principles present in natural ecosystems. Edible ecosystems are low maintenance and space efficient and provide a diverse set of yields throughout the seasons. In this workshop you’ll be introduced to the natural processes that are enlisted to create edible ecosystems, and how to apply natural ecosystem observation to designing our gardens and landscapes based on patterns and plant communities found in nature.
