Telsing Andrews from Aster Lane Edibles (asterlaneedibles.ca) shares about edible perennial landscapes and why she got into breeding rare useful plants. Join us for a tour of Telsing's site and a permaculture farm on September 30.
Shelley Lambert discusses why we mimic nature and the benefits of food forests.
Planting Sudbury's first Community Food Forest with about 60 volunteers, from grade 6 kids to adults over 70, was an amazing 3-day event with a lot of hands in the Earth. We began in fall 2016, meeting regularly with a dedicated committee to design the food forest. The "phase 1" planting this spring consisted of 17 trees, 17 shrubs and over 110 herbaceous plants.
