Rooted in Community: Micro Landscape Design with Zach Loeks – RECORDED


Recorded on April 1, 2020

Join Zach Loeks, director of the Ecosystem Solution Institute and author of The Permaculture Market Garden. In this time of stocking-up and empty shelves, we are getting a loud reminder of the importance of food security. Participate in a live white-board workshop on Micro Landscape Design to learn how you can create an edible ecosystem in your space.  Micro-landscapes are any bit of yard, homestead plot, or farmer’s field that have the potential to be planted into an edible ecosystem.  Whether 5×5 or 5×30, micro-landscapes fit into the edges of our cultural landscape and are opportunities for design.
