Food Forest Workshop

Food Forest Workshop

Our two day Food Forest Workshop covers the history of designed food forests, and takes you through options for your own design process, implementation and maintenance stages.

It includes aspects such as site assessment, shelter, water management, soils, designing in fertility and pest control, the seven layers of planting, guild design, appropriate species for various climates (primarily focused on Hawke's Bay), plant propagation and sourcing, and integration of animals.

What you get:
Tuition - theory and practical sessions
Site visits - tour the Kahikatea Farm food forest and see what works for us, and what we'd do differently!

Comprehensive resource book. Organic morning and afternoon tea.
10% discount on any nursery plants bought at the workshop.

Max 12 participants. Please contact us for recommendations of accommodation options if you are not local. Please note we have no accommodation available at the farm. Discount for two people studying together.
