Spiral Ridge Permaculture Homestead
Edible Forest Gardens Demystified
May 16-17, 2015
What is a forest garden? How do we garden like a forest?
Forest gardens incorporate fruit and nut trees, shrubs, herbs, vines and perennial vegetables that can be used for food, fuel, fiber, fodder, medicinals, crafts, fertility and forage.
Forest gardeners, create systems that mimic nature; from the above and below ground architecture, to how the plants play a part in succession, to the beneficial relationships between the plants.
