Forest Gardening: The Ecological Herbalist    Sat Jun 13 to Sun Jun 14, 2020, London, ON

Forest ecologies reveal numerous valuable qualities that we can learn and be inspired by. We humans would be wise to emulate nature in the way that we live with each other, and in how we grow our food.

Forest ecologies are:

Self- maintaining, renewing, fertilizing, and propagating.
Conserve clean air, clean water, nutrients, soil excellence, and biodiversity.
Self-sustaining – a system that is stable, irrepressible, and resilient.

These qualities emerge from the dynamics of the forest as a whole system, and not from any one or more of the elements that comprise the forest alone. To design productive edible ecosystems that express these same qualities, we must understand forest structures, functions, patterns, and processes, and use this knowledge wisely.

We will dive deeply into the vision, theory, and practice of designing wholesome, dynamic, and resilient medicinal ecosystems using temperate deciduous forests as models. This course uses site walks, experiential exercises, and design projects to help you understand how the architecture, social structure, underground economics, and successional processes of natural forests can be applied to the design of herbal ecosystems. You’ll come to understand a variety of ecological design processes while designing a range of compilation of food-producing ecologies at our demonstration and research gardens.
