Event Flyer - 2 Day Workshop with John Sheffy

Food Forests produce an abundance of perennial foods by mimicking the patterns of natural forests and local biomes.  During this two-day workshop participants will learn how to design and install a quarter acre food forest with a diverse polyculture that includes nitrogen fixing plants, fruit and nut trees, shrubs and berries, flowers for beneficial insects, medicinal and culinary herbs, perennial vegetables, edible fungi, and many other forest companion plants. One focus of the workshop will be putting all this diversity together into a cooperative, self-maintaining system.

Hugelkultur is the practice of burying woody material to create a fungal food bank and healthy soil food web. Swales are water harvesting ditches dug on contour to collect and store water in the soil.

John Sheffy is a Permaculture farmer and consultant with over 10 years of experience with agroforestry projects around the world. John has worked on food forests on urban lots, small homesteads, community orchards, and broad acre designs. He will share his experience working with forest farmers from Mexico, Kenya, Togo, and other countries in addition to his own farm in Wisconsin.
