Learn how to create a beautiful, diverse perennial food garden that gets more and more abundant over the years while requiring less and less work to maintain it.

This will be a mixture of practical hands on practical Permaculture Design in the Community Garden (a LAND project) and indoor learning. The aim is that anyone coming to this day will gain the confidence to create their own basic food forest. They will understand the basics and know where to start.

We are developing an area of the Community Garden and transforming it into a Forest garden. There are already 4 layers to work with!
