Michael Judd 12 Noon - Food Forests, Water Harvesting and More!

A food forest is a low-maintenance gardening technique that mimics a woodland ecosystem but substitutes woodland species with edible trees, shrubs, perennial vegetables, and herbs. Designed correctly, a food forest is sustainable, resilient, builds healthy soil, sequesters carbon, stores rainwater, and provides habitat for wildlife--all while producing a cornucopia of food for you and your family!  Whether you have a little patch of backyard or a huge property to work with, the principles you learn will help make your land more diverse, productive, and ecologically friendly than ever before. Explore the possibilities with Michael Judd, specialist in designing edible and ecological landscapes.
