Cultivating Diverse Ecosystems That Build on Themselves Over Time: C Texas Fall Farming

Come learn about the layers of a food forest and get to know different herbal allies and the various roles they serve in the garden ecosystem. In this class, which will be held near Martindale at Small Town Farm, we’ll discuss ways to increase biodiversity in your space and demonstrate various techniques for making more plants from what’s growing around you. Participants will leave with simple strategies for creating joyful, abundant landscapes for people, plants, and wildlife.  We will have an onsite activity so please come appropriately dressed
