Cultivating Medicinal Plants | Friday, October 23, 6-9 p.m.
Building the Bones | Saturday, October 24, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
This weekend focuses on the basics of medicinal plant cultivation and developing the food forest’s “bones.” Overstory relationships create the structure of the landscape and dominate the soils. We will cover unique issues of soil fertility in a food forest, medicinal qualities of potential overstory plants, working with pollinators and other wildlife, aesthetics, and the potential for incorporating in mushroom species for symbiosis.
