Fundamentals of Food Forestry Online
AboutA food forest is a diverse planting of edible and useful perennials that mimic patterns and relationships. Food forests are considered to have from three to seven layers, with a canopy of tall nut or fruit trees, several layers of smaller trees and shrubs, and an understory of beneficial ground covers. These multi-layered spaces allow you to fit a wide range of annual and perennials in a small area. Creating symbiotic relationships between elements produces a high yield of food and resources over the long term with minimal inputs. Food forests can be performing many ecological functions. They are considered one of the most regenerative and resilient production systems for a changing world.
This course will take you through the successional process of designing your own food forest. Each week, we will have three hours of learning and resources and videos to continue our education throughout the week.
