After a short review of a Permaculture Food Forest, we will have a question-answer period led by Donna Coleman, Permaculture Certificate holder, followed by a group discussion of a subject that is much easier than it appears when first looking at forest gardens.
Remember that one facet of designing a successful forest garden is careful choosing of diverse plants to avoid competition between them while promoting connections between them. Then let nature do most of your work.
Most of all, don't think of a food forest as suitable only for sizable acreage. It is also possible on a smaller scale in your frontyard (that reprehensible urban/suburban waste of space) or backyard in the city.
Bill Mollison, co-founder of Permaculture, once wrote, “Finally with hundreds of itinerant teachers turning up anywhere, the system is beyond restraint. Safe at last, and in geometric growth rate--we have won! Permaculture is permanently ungovernable.”
We will be meeting twice a month, at least into June, to participate in Permaculture's geometric growth of food production and self-sufficiency. Please join us.
