Edible Ecosystems Emerging:
Food Forestry for the 21st Century
A 9-Day Forest Garden Design Intensive with Dave Jacke
October 2 - 11, 2015 - Feathered Pipe Ranch, Montana


For anyone who has gotten a glimpse of, is higly familiar with, or would like to delve into Dave Jacke’s incredible framework for design of systems (both social and ecological), don’t miss the opportunity to work with him for 9 days at the renowned Feathered Pipe Ranch in Montana. This course is, in Dave’s words, “an ecosystem of itself” – designed, tested, and refined over the past few years. You will dive deeply into the vision, theory, and practice of designing wholesome, dynamic, and resilient edible ecosystems using temperate deciduous forests as models.

Dave will be joined in teaching by Juliette Jones, co-founder of Pittsburgh Permaculture, LLC and co-designer of the Hazelnut Food Forest, and Jessica Peterson and Caroline Wallace, founders of Inside Edge Design, LLC and co-creators of the 6th Ward Garden Park, the first public forest garden to utilize Dave’s design framework. The 9-Day Forest Garden Design Intensive hasn’t been offered in the U.S. for three years! Earlybird rates end May 1, 2015.

One of the best Permaculture Design Courses you will ever do. I've seen dozens of people teach PDCs... most of the big names included, but after doing this course I was so impressed by Dave Jacke's design process that I incorporated it as the central design process I teach in my PDCs.

Dave is the most considered and student focussed teachers in the business and understands more about perennial plant systems than anyone I have ever met. If your permaculture is focussed on creating perennial poly-culture plant systems then Dave is your teacher.

Great testimony, Nick! A training of this caliber and value, in such an idyllic and comfortable setting and at this low price is an opportunity not-to-be-missed. Don't wait, register today!

The Forest Garden related content on this course is fabulous, but if you are a true student of design, you will be blown away by the elegance of the design of the educational process. Because he provides knowledge & enquiry tasks for the conscious mind and experiences & processes for the unconscious mind, Dave achieves a degree of integrated learning that is rare.

..even though I'm from sunny Oz, I also know a couple of the students attending this course & it will also be great because they are there! Choose to join the discerning clientele of Mr. Jacke!~

I'm excited to report that the course is coming together beautifully! We are working with Dave on the intentional design of the course and it's many details as a holistic learning experience. Field trips (a local botanical garden and then hot springs with a geothermally-heated greenhouse, edible and medicinal perennial...) and design project sites have been chosen and soon we will start our 'analysis' of participants to design strong, balanced design teams.

There is still time to sign up but don't delay! Scholarships still available. Find details and information at www.insideedgedesign.com/upcomingevents.
 
I agree. Here's the link: https://richsoil.com/wood-heat.jsp
