Actions for Adaptation: CFI’s 2013 Summer Workshop Series

by Community Forests International on May 1, 2013

Community Forests International’s popular workshop series is back for the 5th year running, now with a broadened curriculum focused on adaptation and traditional skills.  As Maritime communities strive to adapt to a changing economy and climate, traditional knowledge is gaining new relevance and successful innovations are providing new opportunities.  Through hands-on experiential training, CFI aims to transfer valuable ‘adaptation’ skills to students throughout the Maritimes in order to foster grassroots solutions to climate change regionally.

2013 SUMMER WORKSHOP # 1   Food Forest Gardening 101 Introduction to the complex, visionary, and often inspiring world of food forest gardening, an ecological approach to growing food like a forest.  Come get your hands dirty in CFI’s working model, and learn how to transform your lawn into a lush, edible woodland (see our before and after photos below!)

Where: Sackville Community Garden - Charles Street, Sackville, NB

When: May 25th 1pm - 4 pm
