2020 Workshops & Events

 

We our excited to be offering a series of 6 free workshops in 2020 through ReForest London as part of the Signal Boost Initiative, which was made possible with support from the Ontario Trillium Foundation. Due to physical distancing regulations we are moving to online webinars for most, if not all, of our workshops.

Tuesday, April 21st 6:00 - 8:00

Fruit and Nut Tree Pruning and Holistic Care

If you have edible fruit or nut trees on your property, you likely know the joys of growing your own food, creating pollinator-friendly spaces, seeing gorgeous spring blossoms, and having trees that don't take up too much space. This is a webinar made for those who have or care for fruit or nut trees, or for people who want to learn more about urban agriculture. In this webinar, you will learn basic pruning, pest control and tree maintenance.

Permaculture 101: Resilient and Regenerative Design

Imagine stepping out of your home into lush abundant greenery. The air is fragrant with the delicate scent of blossoms. You reach up, pick a few cherries, and feel the rush of sweetness as it hits your taste-buds. It is hard to believe how much bounty you have harvested from this small space with so little labour. Instead of getting out your weeding tools as you once did, you slip into your hammock and admire the low-maintenance beauty around you. Believe it or not, it is possible to grow food and regenerate the environment in a yard of any size, and it may be easier than you think!

Join Jessica Robertson from Wild Craft Permaculture to learn about this approach to food and medicine production, with a focus on perennial plants and holistic system design. This introductory course will teach you the ethics and principles of permaculture, as well as some practical techniques that can be employed. It will be followed up by a full day course in late July.
