Permaculture design consciously mimics ecosystem structures of natural communities to create complete cultural systems. Landscape design teaches us ecological principles to apply to our challenge of building sustainable societies.

This workshop will explore how permaculture principles can change a commercial apple orchard into a diversified, 4-season, community-supported foodshed. Saratoga Apple will provide practical examples of how to apply permaculture principles to develop a transition design and plan for an edible forest farm.

Dave Jacke,
permaculture designer, author & teacher, studied ecology and design in the 70s, ran Dynamics Ecological Design since 1984, authored award winning Edible Forest Gardens, designed, built and planted landscapes for homes, farms and communities in the U.S. and overseas.
