Description

 WHAT: Food forest design workshop

The Open Space Visitor Center is located at 6500 Coors Blvd NW at the end of Bosque Meadows Rd. between Montaño and Paseo del Norte

Who waters, weeds and feeds forests? Can we design gardens and farms to be as carefree and resilient as wild forests? What can we learn from natural forests to create more sustainable farms, gardens and local communities, and support wildlife? 

Suitable for homes, schools and small scale farms, food forests are manmade agricultural installations designed by mimicking natural forests. Food forestry aims toward the self-reliance and resilience of natural forests. It supports pollinators and other wildlife while providing not only food, but other resources that support local community self-reliance. 

Join Patty Parks-Wasserman for a brief but comprehensive workshop in designing your own food forest, that can save you time, work and water, while providing for many of your needs.
