Frogtown Farm has a permaculture-informed landscape design which incorporates a holistic approach to food production that values environmental health and human conditions. Permaculture incorporates ecological principles by using diverse perennial and annual plants to grow food with low inputs. This workshop is designed to specifically take a look at permaculture guilds- a group of perennial plants that actively help one another grow in companion. We will cover subjects related to:
~Types of guilds
~Layers in permaculture guilds
~Specific species that are good for fruit production, insectaries, pollinators, nitrogen fixing, understory edibles
Class is taught by Courtney Tchida, UMN Student Organic Farm Manager & St. Paul resident. Courtney grows and teaches organic vegetable farming at the University of Minnesota.
