Toby Hemenway will conduct a Food Forest Design and Care for Cities and Suburbs workshop on September 13, 2013 (9am - 4pm with lunch!) at the Spokane Museum of Arts and Culture (MAC). Afterwards, Toby will join us as our Keynote Speaker and weekend guest for the 2013 Inland NW Permaculture Convergence at Camp MiVoden in Idaho's Hayden Lake.

Food forests, or edible forest gardens, are life-filled places that not only provide
food for people, but habitat for wildlife, carbon sequestering, biodiversity,
natural soil building, beauty and tranquility, and a host of other benefits. This
workshop will cover the basics of designing, planting, and maintaining a manylayered woodland garden of fruit and nut trees, perennial and annual vegetables,
and flowers. The day-long class will give you both the theory behind food forests
and a wealth of practical information, including which plants to use, where to
start, and what to expect as your food forest grows. We'll also look at ways to
aid policy-makers in establishing public food forests. More information about
Toby Hemenway and Gaia’s Garden

Registration is open! Sign-up at and hurry, this stellar event should sell-out quickly.
