Permaculture designer and teacher Mike Kluk will explore the place of a forest garden within an overall permaculture design. Mike will cover the challenges presented in a foothills-influenced Mediterranean climate, overview forest garden design basics, explain site preparation, planting and maintenance procedures, and list the varieties of trees, vines, shrubs and annuals that will survive in our local climate. This presentation will be more of a discussion than a lecture since Mike’s own forest garden is only three years old and he still has more questions than answers about what works.
Also: Guild Veggie, Herb and Flower Start Exchange – Please bring your surplus open-pollinated and heirloom vegetable, herb, and flower starts to exchange with guild members!
