DESCRIPTION & ACTIVITIES
Planting to feed future generations in temperate climates of the mid-Atlantic is imperative. So,imagine a forest that provides an abundance of food, fiber, fuel and pharmacy while requiring a minimum of human intervention. The system works together in a multi-layered and resilient ecosystem. Learn how to design and create such a system for your own permanent or temporary dwellings. Some hands on activities will include planting a forest garden design, site visit to an established food forest, and sharing ideas in conviviality. To start off our weekend, a public film showing and potluck with the community of Bedford County, PA will take place in the barn on Friday evening at dusk.
