“Permaculture and Food Forests” presentation tomorrow at JCC

Two founding members of the Beacon Food Forest will present a talk tomorrow (Saturday, June 16) about permaculture practices and how they will be used to build the food forest.

The talk, “Permaculture and Food Forests: Taking care of our Fruit Trees in Holistic and Long-Lasting Ways,” is at Jefferson Community Center, 3801 Beacon Ave. S., from 10 – 11:30 a.m.

According to the announcement, “We will be sharing formation on building soil, food forests, permaculture and plant communities. These skills will enable our community to care for fruit trees, including those we planted last month into pots for the fall, helping build a resilient community and local food source.

“Thanks to the efforts of City Fruit, in partnership, we have been funded by an ACT grant to bring this information to our community. Please RSVP cramerjacqueline99@gmail.com.”

If you can’t make this class, there will be another one on June 30 at 10 a.m. at El Centro de la Raza.

Earlier this month, neighbors toured the Food Forest site to see where the plants and features will be. Photo by K. Shuyler in the Beacon Hill Blog photo pool on Flickr.
