THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL SPRING OF 2017. PLEASE CHECK GROW BENZIE’S EVENT CALENDAR FOR UPDATES.
Grab a gooseberry, caress your kale, and prune your paw paw tree, all right outside your back door. Whether you call yourself a homesteader, urban-steader, or small farmer, we all have plots and patches that could be transformed from grass to great.
Dive deep into ecological and edible landscaping through a three-day intensive with Trevor Newman (Roots to Fruits Ecological Design) and Levi Meeuwenberg (Realeyes Homestead and the Edible Trails Project). The workshop takes place at the beautiful grounds of Grow Benzie in Benzonia.
You will learn how to:
– Design and plan an edible landscape
– Integrate annual and perennial crops
– Prep your site and implement your edible landscape plan
– Add animals to the mix
– Manage your landscape through time
– Take these skills home to start your own landscape design
