Last week I talked to Dave Jacke (primary author of Edible Forest Gardens) about his upcoming Australian tour of talks and workshops. We talked about consciously designing gardens like forest ecosystems that maximise food production, for backyard scale and beyond. Have a listen!
We also talked about designing for resilience, and establishing perennial food, fibre and medicine producing systems that anticipate change in the climate, and everything that flows from that.
Dave Jacke will be traveling through NSW, VIC and TAS in March this year, discussing, teaching and sharing his considerable knowledge of designing like a forest (as opposed to designing in a forest) as he goes. Come along! We’ll be there:
- Sydney talk: 1 March
- Sydney workshop: 2-3 March
- Penguin (TAS) seminar: 7 March
- Melbourne Talk: 8 March
- Melbourne short course: 9-10 March
Apologies for the slight crackle on the line! Dave was in a gathering snowstorm. Such is the nature of this world we live in.
