Edible Gardening Workshop - Beauty and Bounty: Designing Organic Edible Landscapes

Learn to design an edible landscape with vegetables, fruits, herbs and flowers as your landscape materials. Using organic gardening methods as the design principles will produce solid strategies for the landscape designer.  Explore how straightforward principles, like building up the biology of your soil, planting areas of pollinator-attracting plants, holding on to the water that falls on your site, and making use of inter-cropping to increase your yield can create beautiful results. See examples of these designs in practice, discover resources and plants that will help you succeed, and try your hand at creating your own design during the workshop. Make a connection between healthy food and a beautiful landscape with your thoughtful design.
