Edible Forest Garden to be Planted at 3614 N. 30th St. -
Saturday and Sunday, January 26-27
Join Edible Forest Gardens and Carla Moschetti and David Lee to establish an Edible Forest Garden in Tacoma's Proctor District at 3614 N. 30th St. January 26 and 27.
You are invited to help plant fruit and nut trees and berry bushes then sheet mulch the lawn by putting down cardboard and wood chips to remove the grass. Edible Forest Gardens consist of three main layers, with fruit and nut trees as the upper canopy, berries and other edible bushes as the middle layer and perennial vegetables and fruits as the ground cover.
The FREE workshop includes:
~ Design and layout of trees and shrubs in an edible forest garden
~ Planting trees and shrubs
~ Sheet mulching the lawn
Saturday 10 am to 4 pm:
10 am Planting Edible Trees and Shrubs - taking tape off cardboard

We will be there from 10 AM until 4 PM both days with potluck lunches. Feel free to come for full days, half days or just stop by when you can. This hands on workshop will show what you too could do in your own yard. We hope that neighborhood planning could lead to a number of forest gardens throughout Tacoma neighborhoods.
