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.
Michael Judd has worked with agro-ecological and whole system designs throughout the Americas for the last 20 years focusing on applying permaculture and ecological design to increase local food security and community health in both tropical and temperate growing regions. The founder of both Ecologia, LLC, Edible & Ecological Landscape Design and Project Bona Fide, an international non-profit supporting agro-ecology research.
