Food Forest Gardens

PRESENTER: Mike Boss, Rock and Rose Landscapes

It doesn’t get more local or fresh than food from one’s own back yard. This workshop will explore ways to make mini Gardens of Eden. The more food grown at home, the more we reduce our environmental footprint by using less fossil fuel, less water, less fertilizer and fewer chemicals. There will be an emphasis on incorporating ecological principles, such as soil building, using perennial edibles and planting for habitat enhancement.

In this fast-paced seminar, native guru Greg Rubin will touch on all aspects of native landscaping, and how it differs from conventional ornamental horticulture. Learn specific information about: Native mycorrhizal soil ecology; how to capture that ecology in the home landscape; design concepts and styles; plant selection; irrigation design; watering schedules; maintenance; mulches, and pest and weed control. Rather than a "natives use less water and boy aren't they great" presentation, this session gives very specific info that you can apply immediately. Is your community's planning department strictly enforcing new Model Water Efficient Landscape Ordinance (MWELO) regulations? A mastery of native plants can streamline the process and help avoid the delays, frustration, confusion and worse reported by many contractors.
