Morning: The basis of your food forest is your soil. Healthy soil means healthy, beautiful plants and a bounty of good food to harvest. In this workshop we will analyze the soil of our host site, and take steps to amend and improve it. Our instructor is a geologist with a speciality in soil science and permaculture.
Afternoon: Ensuring the long-term survival of your food forest trees begins from the moment you plant them. Proper planting technique increases survival rates of your new plants, and gives them a head start to grow quickly. In this workshop, we will plant trees at our host site. Our instructor is the owner of a decades-old private food forest and steward of one of the Boston Food Forest gardens.
