This is Day 1 of installation for “Healthy Futures” public demonstration food forest garden in Vacaville. 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 andlearn 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.
A healthy lunch will be provided by the homeowner. Please bring hats, gloves, reusable water bottle and sunblock.
