Gardening in the Hudson Valley grows to a new level for the third year
in a row! AppleSeed Permaculture, The Ashokan Center and Camp Epworth
proudly presents the first ever Forest Garden Immersion Series. Join us
for a hands-on skill-building experience in forest gardening from start
to finish. Learn to transform traditional lawn landscapes into abundant
food-producing perennial gardens. Each unique weekend equips
participants with the skills needed to get started at their own home or
expand the abilities of a gardening business.
Design & Theory- Dave Jacke, primary author of the Award-winning
2-volume Edible Forest Gardens, will kick off our first weekend with an
evening talk. Throughout the rest of the weekend we will begin the
design process for a future farm on our host site.
Install & Establish- In our second weekend we will get our hands
dirty while we Install and Establish a brand new forest garden. This is
the third year in a row that we are planting out forest gardens in the
Tend & Caretake- The already existing forest gardens at Camp
Epworth will receive our love and attention in the third weekend of the
series. We will immerse ourselves in how to Tend and Caretake the
gardens to support future food abundance.
Food & Medicine- This leads us to our final weekend with special
guest Dina Falconi. In this last weekend of the series we will harvest
the fruits of our labor and spend the entire time making Food and
Forest gardening yields local abundance, healthy families, and thriving ecosystems. Join us to build your own knowledge and experience and bring these ingredients to your home and community.
Imagine a future of homegrown fruits- berries, pawpaws and persimmons,
perennial vegetables- sorrel, ground nuts, water celery and more! All
of this is possible.
