Garden Like Nature: a Hands-on Forest Garden Workshop
Want to move beyond organic gardening to the next level of sustainability?

Forest gardening is a revolutionary method of designing edible perennial landscapes that mimic the diversity and resilience of forest ecosystems. Through permaculture, a design approach that seeks to apply nature's patterns to the human realm, we can design forest gardens that provide delicious food, healthy soil and attractive habitat รข" all without the continual tilling, weeding and watering of a conventional garden.

Join us in this hands-on workshop as we install one of Denver's first public forest gardens at Ekar Urban Farm. We'll introduce permaculture and discuss the practical theory behind forest gardening before getting our hands dirty building a 15'x35' sheet-mulched forest garden employing locally-adapted edible perennials.

With a mix of lecture and hands-in-the-ground work, you'll learn:

~ How to create fertile soil from waste material commonly found in the urban environment
~ Which obscure edible plants are well-suited to Colorado's climate
~ How to design and install self-maintaining edible landscapes that provide food, shade and beauty year after year

This hands-on opportunity is not to be missed!
