A food forest is a perennial multi-layered edible ecosystem. It is a great way to build habitat, enhance your soil, store carbon, and get food all at once. Come learn how to plan your own food forest including: how to choose a site, evaluating and preparing your soil, species and variety selection, how to create a guild, planting, and maintenance.

We are committed to making all the Zoom classes in our Horticulture Program financially accessible, so have moved to a pay-what-you-can model. Our Zoom classes are valued at $20. If you can afford to pay $20 or more, you are helping make these classes available to folks who cannot afford the full price. All registrants, regardless of payment level, will receive a video recording of the class. Because of limited physical space in our in-person classes, we cannot offer unlimited free spaces, but we do have a few scholarship spots available. Simply reach out to us at the contact info below to claim one of those spots.
$0-$40/person, self determined sliding scale, pay what you can afford
