A forest full of food
Want to learn how to turn your yard into a "forest"of edible foods?
The Winslow Food Forest will teach attendees how to begin their own food forest at a Thursday, June 28 Food Forestry 101 class.
Instructor and urban food forester Teague Cullen will describe the components of an edible ecosystem from 12 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., according to a Winslow Food Forest news release.
Cullen will tackle the broad subject of food forestry, a gardening technique that resembles woodland ecosystems with fruit and nut trees and berry bushes. This will include the history of food forestry, its differences from organic farming and tools for food forest design.
Cullen will also teach attendees how to plan, design, install and maintain their own food forest systems year after year.
The class will end with a tour of the Winslow Food Forest, showing attendees how a developed forest can look. The site is at 3499 S.E. Sherrett St. in Portland.
