Grange to hold edible forest garden workshop
On Thursday, Nov. 1 the Sebastopol Grange and Occidental Arts and Ecology Center will hold a workshop from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on designing edible forest gardens with Eric Toensmeier. The workshop will be at the Grange Hall at 6000 Highway 12 in Sebastopol. Admission is on a sliding scale from $5 to $10 but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
Edible forest gardens mimic the structures and functions of natural ecosystems while producing healthy food and other products, with an emphasis on low-maintenance perennial crops. Toensmeier has written about designing and planting to help provide fertility, control of weeds and pests, and more. He will emphasize the design and maintenance of temperate climate permaculture edible forest gardens.
