HOW TO: GROW FRUITS AND BERRIES THAT ARE LOW-MAINTENANCE, PRODUCTIVE AND BEAUTIFUL
This workshop explores the many edible shrubs and trees that are available to us for our homesteads and will address questions such as "which ones are right for me?" "which ones fit my particular microclimate?" and "how can I get them established and maintain them successfully?" John is particularly interested in under-utilized plants that have great potential yet have been overlooked, as well as best practices for those that deserve their excellent reputation.

Classes will be held on his homestead in Vashon; maximum 12 people.

Who is this guy?
For the past four years, John has run HomeGrown Organics, an edible landscaping company in Seattle. He is an experienced contractor with the City of Seattle's RainWise program there, and has designed and built dozens of low-maintenance urban farms.

In 2016, he decided to open a new branch of HomeGrown Organics, this time focusing particularly on homesteads on Vashon Island. He now offers his services to his neighbors where together he hopes to build a more resilient community and a more beautiful and productive relationship with their land.

A NW native, what drew him to this beautiful island was the vision of a life where his daughters could grow up a few steps from the woods and a stream, raising animals and growing tree crops while still being connected to a vibrant community. He draws regular inspiration from the meadows, woods, creeks, and wetlands that he explores with his family.

Things he focuses on in his work:
-Food Forests
-Native Plantings
-Rainwater Harvesting
-Ponds & Water Features
-Recycled Materials
-Animal Systems
-Artful Fences & Gates
-Infrastructure
-Outdoor Spaces

HomeGrown Organics originally opened as a sustainable landscaping company serving the Seattle area. The Seattle branch of HGO continues to serve urban families seeking to establish and maintain their outdoor spaces resourcefully and creatively in the city.
