Edible Landscaping and Regenerative Design

Carbon Friendly Food Gardening
Have you been working on reducing your carbon footprint?  Have you thought
about where your food comes from?  Do you know that one of the most carbon
friendly activities is growing your own food?  According to Project
Drawdown, 12 of the top 20 Summary of Solutions by Rank, are categorized as
either Land Use or Food. The ethics, principles, and tools collectively
sometimes called permaculture, also known as ecological design, provide us
with solutions to integrate food production into our landscape management
while also contributing to climate change mitigation. In this workshop,
we'll learn how to utilize regenerative design methods to feed ourselves
while also creating beautiful edible landscapes, including food forest
gardens, outdoor living areas, shady pockets, and traditional landscaping
forms with an edible twist. We'll also view and discuss many real life
examples of edible creativity! Please join us as Patty Love, Founder and
Owner of Barefoot Ecological Design and Rochester Permaculture Center shares
with us about:
- terminology, ethics, and principles for ecological design and permaculture
- a design process
- tools for applying permaculture/ecological design to your landscape
- site considerations for integrating your home into the existing landscape
- edible landscaping options with an emphasis on the why and how's of food
forest gardening - examples from home gardening to homesteading
