THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED

This public, hands-on installation workshop series will create “Pollinators Paradise,” a demonstration food forest garden in Dixon, creating an opportunity to learn about rainwater capture and how to plant and mulch for a waterwise garden that builds healthy soil and yields food.
Workshops will go from 10 am to 4 pm, though work may finish early. A light lunch is provided by the homeowner. Please bring your own dish and spoon, hats, gloves, reusable water bottle and sunblock.

DAY 2: Saturday, April 4 – Understory and drip irrigation

Day 2 adds plants to the ecosystem as well as drip irrigation, and is an opportunity to see a yard transformed into a customized food forest based on permaculture design principles.

Topics Covered:

  • Planting a community of plants with multiple functions that support a healthy, diverse ecosystem.
  • Surface drip irrigation installation: adding irrigation for young plants and water conservation.
  • Covering the food forest with free woodchips (mulch) to prevent water evaporation and improve soil health.

These workshops are funded through the Solano County Water Agency.
