Event Description

Ladies, Gentlemen, Perennial Plants and those in between,

Richard Walker Food Forest Permaculture


Richard Walker's Victoria workshop sold out in 5 days?



I guess that just goes to show how super amazing and timely the topic of food security is. Not to mention that Food Forests produce more over time and take less effort to maintain (hello lazy gardener!).

If you'd like to immerse yourself into Food Forestry with Richard, check out his Vancouver Workshop or arrange a Site Consultation and contact us.

Organic Farming Food Security

Due to the overwhelming response to Richard's workshop we're offering a little appetizer.

That's right you get a few hours of learning from Mr. Walker and get to help out local food forestry all by bringing yourself and a friend to an evening of fan-fruiting-tastic food forestry fun [and no we won't ask you to say this 4 time fast to get in, however now that I think about it I could just for kicks :) ].

Here's the skinny...

Richard will give a 1 1/2 hour talk on food forests and why they are such an essential piece of food sovereignty (and why they're wicked cool) and then 30 whole minutes for questions on everything from why your 10 year old plum tree looks so weary to what's the 4 most valuable medicinal plants to grow.

Remember Richard's course sold out in 5 days, if you're interested in the talk best to reserve your seat now.

Show up early and bring your community spirit.

That's it folks, make sure to get there early, bring a friend, or bring a first blind date and if it goes well you've probably have a partner for life!

Who wouldn't want a partner who food forests?

If you'd like to immerse yourself into Food Forestry with Richard, check out his Vancouver Workshop or arrange a Site Consultation and contact us.


You are going to have such a good time...

Treefully Yours,

Vancouver Workshop in partnership with Village Vancouver and Langara College

Permaculture is a science based ethical design system. Used to answer the all encompassing question "How do we live sustainably?" Founded in three ethics - Earth Care, People Care and Fair Share practitioners of permaculture use nature inspired design with tools and methods based in science, engineering, agriculture, finances, community building to create sustainable regenerative human habitat. This design system uses organic agriculture, urban farming, regenerative design, and many other ways of knowing to teach and provide a practical framework for individuals to take responsibility for themselves, their children and their community.
