This is Day 1 of installation of a demonstration food forest garden at a Suisun City private residence. We will be laying down the foundation of this edible garden: digging on contour swales, making birms, diverting the roof water and planting trees. Break ground with friends and neighbors and learn how to use water wisely while creating an environment where life supporting plants thrive.
Each installation day includes a short lecture from a sustainable landscape expert and hands-on experience on how to build a food forest.
Please bring hats, gloves, reusable water bottle and sunblock.
DAY 1: Saturday, April 7th– Laying the foundation.
DAY 2: Sunday, April 15th– Learn to install a laundry-to-landscape greywater system.
DAY 3: Saturday, May 5th– Wrap it all up! This day, we plant the food forest, install a water-efficient drip system, and cover the food forest with mulch.
