Forwarding from Steve at: [address removed] ...

Beginning January 17, 2013,  Living Potentials will present a 6 week course entitled  "Developing a Forest/Wild Garden" on Thursday evenings from 6:30-8:30PM at the School of Nurses Building, 17th and Chew streets in Allentown. The instructor will be Stephen Hoog and the cost is $120. 

The theme of the course will be the development of highly productive areas for food, wood or other items in alignment with natural systems with  ultimately a minimum of inputs from the people who manage the areas. Students will discuss what a forest garden is and why one would want to create one. They will learn about the elements in a forest garden,learn about design principles, practice designs for their own property, and review preparation, planting and maintenance needs for the project.  They will also discuss the optimum choices for trees, shrubs, and vegetables in their designs. Overall the course will compare and contrast the ideas of Patrick Whitefield, author of "How to make a Forest Garden, David Jacke, Goeff Lawton, and Masanobu Fukuoka, author of "One Straw Revolution," and discuss the principles of the Macrobiotic Way of Living. This is a fluid class and will be  open to your personal needs at whatever level you are at.

Stephen Hoog has been a Macrobiotic Counselor, cook and lecturer since 1980, a Wild Food and Herb educator since 1975 and has participated in and facilitated permaculture and eco-design landscaping workshops in the Lehigh Valley and State College areas.
