Grow Your Own Produce Series: Planning, Design & Framework

This opening session will focus on garden planning and design. From the Macro perspective to the microclimate, we will discuss Permaculture design strategies that can maximize your yields and diversity of crops throughout the season. Fruit trees, berry bushes, and other large landscaping elements will be discussed as the framework for creating the context for your space. We will talk about bed preparation and the earliest crop, peas! 

Each participant is encouraged to come with a base map of their site for developing site analysis overlays. Marisha will provide tracing paper. 

Please contact Marisha if you need support before class to have a base map of your site available.

These classes are available as a five class series ($100) or as individual events ($25 each). 20% off discount for People's Food Coop members – just be in touch with Marisha by email at to get the discount code. Refund Policy: Refunds are not available after the start of the first class
