Permaculture Practicum with Darren Doherty

Aug 11, 2014 9:00am-6:00pm (ended)

Darren Doherty is internationally recognized as a leader and pioneer in permaculture and regenerative agriculture! The format of this three-day course combines Darren's teaching on each specific topic, with a live walk-through of how to run an effective consultation with real clients.  

August 11: From Orchard to Stacked Enterprise 

GreenFriends Farm has been exploring the edge between market orchard and food forest for many years.  The food forest is often created as a forage based system, which can make it very difficult to manage in a market orchard situation.   Darren will bring decades of experience in stacked enterprise perennial agriculture to help make design choices that will keep fruit yields high, create easier management, integrate animals for fertility and weed management and diversify the products and yields.
