Edible Landscaping and Straw Bale Home Tour [OFFSITE]
September 11 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm$65.00
Join us for a fruitful tour of edible and ecological landscapes while learning how to successfully create abundant landscapes with little to no maintenance. Food forests, mushrooms, swale gardens, living willow structures, hügelkultur beds, herb spirals, kiwi arbors, pawpaw groves… and a circular strawbale home. Tastings included. Lead by author and edible landscape designer Michael Judd at Long Creek Homestead.
Workshops will be a combination of theory and hands-on practice. Please wear good walking shoes, dress for the weather, and bring some water! Whether you have a little patch of backyard or a huge property to work with, the principles you learn in this tour will help make your land more diverse, productive, and ecologically friendly than ever before.
Workshops will be a combination of theory and trying tasty food forest goodies!
