Want to see permaculture plantings that work?

Would you like to create a thriving edible forest garden that produces loads of fruits, roots, shoots, greens, seeds, flowers, mulch, eggs, knowledge and fun?

Come learn how to use the plants (and other yields) from the permaculture gardens as shown in Jonathan Bates’ presentation in your own garden. Learn guiding principles to plant your own food forest.

This is a great chance to special order plants from the Food Forest Farm nursery with free delivery to the event.

Much of the plant stock comes from the Holyoke Edible Forest Garden, a case study highlighted in the book Edible Forest Gardens by Dave Jacke and Eric Toensmeier.

Choose from a selection of plants that human food and medicinal needs and provide ecosystem services such as attracting beneficial insects and accumulating nutrients. Available plants include: Paw Paw, New Jersey Tea, Hazelbert, Goumi, Currants, Ground Nut, Sunchoke, Good King Henry, Mint Root, Sea Kale, Perennial Arugula, and many more!
