Edible and Ecological Landscaping Workshop

Our Urban Agriculture Series saw another excellent weekend workshop- this time, a lesson on foodscaping. Taught by Jeremy Lekich of Nashville Foodscapes and Compost Nashville and held on the little patch of paradise that is Little House Nashville, participants got a hands-on tour of the ground and a lesson on pruning to cap off the morning. Jeremy and his stellar team at Nashville Foodscapes have been turning sterile, finicky lawns into fertile mini-forests for a few years now, educating homeowners along the way to make known the ease and endless pleasures of perennial, multi-functional landscapes. Guided by permaculture principles and supported by a supportive local community of homeowners like Jane Hardy of Little House, more and more people are getting back to the garden. Thanks to all who came out, Jeremy for teaching, and Jane Hardy for sharing her space. We look forward to the next workshop in our Urban Agriculture series... can you hear the bees buzzing?
