Our two day Food Forest Workshop here in Hawke’s Bay covers the history of designed food forests, and takes you through options for your own design process, implementation and maintenance stages. It includes aspects such as site assessment, shelter, water management, soils, designing in fertility and pest control, the seven layers of planting, guild design, appropriate species for various climates (primarily focused on Hawke’s Bay), plant propagation and sourcing, and integration of animals. We’ll tour our site which includes certified organic nursery, food forest, permaculture home gardens with may features applicable to food forests in urban areas, plus see our new agroforestry project, see how the established swales and terraces provide water catchment, and get to taste test some of the plants! We’ll also see the local school’s young vege gardens and food forest.
What you get:
- Tuition – theory and practical sessions
- Site visits – tour the Kahikatea Farm food forest and see what works for us, and what we’d do differently!
- Comprehensive resource book
- Organic morning and afternoon tea
- 10% discount on any nursery plants bought at the workshop
