Attend both food forest workshops and save a few bucks…
April 2nd, 1 to 4 pm
Join expert agroforestry designer Chad Cully to learn about the basics of food forests and this cutting edge approach to climate adaptation. The afternoon will be spent learning a few of the basics of food forest plants (what are they useful for, how do they generate revenue? and more).
The class will end with time spent propagating plants. Everyone will go home with at least one plant they started.
It is bound to be cold so come prepared by dressing warmly, wearing gloves and a hat, and bringing a warm drink. The workshop will be held in the BRS high tunnel, but it has no heat source.
April 3rd, 1 to 4 pm
Then the next day, learn how to design your own food forest. The afternoon will be spent learning the basics of food forest design and will include planting and mulching the new BRS West Field Food Forest.
Everyone will receive a crop fact sheet and learn how to not only plan a garden but also to learn what to expect as the garden matures. Weather permitting there will be an opportunity to plant some of the plants that are built into the design process.
Accommodations may be available to people attending both afternoons…BRS one-bed cabins ($35 Saturday night) or camping ($15).
*Cully is a soon-to-graduate Cornell University graduate student in natural resources and the environment. He has been working with Annie since 2018 designing and propagating all of the plants in the new food forest in the West Field at Blue Rock Station.
