Edible Forest Gardens (Youth Class)

Edible Forest Gardening isn’t necessarily gardening in the forest - it’s gardening like the forest: multiple horizons (ground cover, herbaceous plants, shrubs, trees, vines), minimizing soil disturbance, mixing annual and perennial species, providing a diversity of products for human and non-human communities.  How we can we use these principles to design and intentionally integrate elements of a garden in a way that encourages them to support one another, while providing abundant food, medicine, fuel and other needs for our human and greater ecological communities?  In this weekend long intensive we will explore and design edible forest gardens for our temperate northern climate here in Vermont!
