Fred Meyer from Backyard Abundance is designing the 60′ x 100′ space to fill a Draco Hill forest garden with cherry, apple and fig trees, berry bushes, persimmons, rhubarb and other great stuff as part of an edible path to the river.

His presentation will include the basics of permaculture design, including

  • Properly siting a permaculture project
  • Letting the ground store the water
  • Plant guilds
  • Root systems that work together

The event organizers request that people interested in attending this event register early because space is limited and food will be provided.
