Help Us Plant the First Edible Forest Garden in the Wildwood Neighborhood

All Neighbors from All Neighborhoods Invited to Join Wildwood in this Workshop

The Wildwood Neighborhood Association joins with Terra Commons www.terracommons.us  to establish an Edible Forest Garden in Marianne Guerin and Miguel Perez-Gibson’s yard at 2418 Otis on September 19-21.

You are invited to help plant fruit and nut trees and berry bushes then sheet mulch the lawn by putting down cardboard and wood chips to remove the grass. Edible Forest Gardens consist of three main layers, with fruit and nut trees as the upper canopy, berries and other edible bushes as the middle layer and perennial vegetables and fruits as the ground cover.

The FREE workshop includes:

  • Design and layout of trees and shrubs in an edible forest garden
  • Planting trees and shrubs and inoculating oyster mushrooms
  • Sheet Mulching lawn

We will be there from 10 AM until 4 PM each day with potluck lunches.  Feel free to come for both full days, half days or just stop by when you can. This hands on workshop will show what you too could do in your own yard. We hope that neighborhood planning could lead to a number of forest gardens on Otis and throughout the neighborhod – this is just the beginning. Let Michael Kelly terracommons@gmail.com know of your interest.

  • WOODCHIPS:  Maple, alder, willow, etc.  NO CEDAR. Call Marianne at 357-7576 about delivery.
