Good Neighbor Farms

Patrick and Andrea Johns plan for a permaculture life

Author: Annie M

We live on 1.5 acres in the Spokane Valley.  We have lived here 35 years.  For the most part we have kept the place free of toxic chemicals.  We have three 60 year old apple trees, two 60 year old sweet cherry trees, and a lovely, old plum tree.  The fruit on that tree is like honey, no bitterness under the skin.  There is also a 25 year old Black Walnut that produces a lot of nuts.  We just have to figure out how to liberate the nut meats from the outer hull.  Our rhubarb, raspberries and horseradish are well established.  All the other fruit bearing trees are 10 years old and younger.

Food Forest Design and Care for Cities and Suburbs

with Toby Hemenway

Food forests, or edible forest gardens, are life-filled places that not only provide food for people, but habitat for wildlife, carbon sequestering, biodiversity, natural soil building, beauty and tranquility, and a host of other benefits. This workshop covers the basics of designing, planting, and maintaining a many-layered woodland garden of fruit and nut trees, perennial and annual vegetables, and flowers. In this class Toby gives you both the theory behind food forests and a wealth of practical information, including which plants to use, where to start, and what to expect as your food forest grows.
