Food Forestry practitioner speaks in Penticton

Greetings garden lovers ~

We are pleased to announce that renowned Food Forester, Richard Walker, will be instructing on June 22nd and 23rd at the Shatford Centre. Space is limited, so we encourage you to research this amazing gardening process and decide whether you would like to attend as soon as possible.

Maybe you’ve read the recent UN report recognizing perennials as essential in creating sustainable food sources… 

Or maybe you realized what many gardeners, farmers and people around have discovered… 

Food Forest gardening provides food, fiber, fuel and medicine with lower maintenance and cost over time. 

Whatever you’ve heard, food forest gardening is a method of gardening based on natural forest systems that, when mature, need little to no fertilizing, watering or maintenance
