Healthy forests maintain, fertilize, and renew themselves, naturally. Wouldn?t

you like to grow an abundant food-producing ecosystem like this in your back yard?

You can! Edible forest gardens mimic the structure and function of natural forests

through all their stages of development and grow food, fuel, fiber, fodder, fertilizers,

farmaceuticals, and fun. We can meet our own needs and regenerate healthy

ecosystems at the same time! This talk introduces the vision of forest gardening with

some scientific background, a few living examples, and a sampling of some useful

perennial edibles you can use in your own garden.

Biography: Dave Jacke, primary author of the award winning two-volume book Edible Forest Gardens,

has studied ecology and design since the 1970s, and has run his own design firm -Dynamics Ecological

Design - since 1984. Dave is an engaging and passionate teacher of ecological design and permaculture.

He has designed, built, and planted landscapes, homes, farms, and communities in the many parts of the

United States, as well as overseas. A cofounder of Land Trust at Gap Mountain in Jaffrey, NH, he

homesteaded there for a number of years. Dave holds a B.A. in Environmental Studies from Simon's Rock

College and a M.A. in Landscape Design from the Conway School of Landscape Design.
