What if you could pick breakfast on the way to class? LongGreenHouse is sponsoring a Green Design charette on Friday 1 May that reimagines the University of Maine campus as an edible food forest.
Permaculture experts and U-Me faculty and students will be joining LongGreenHouse founders Joline Blais and gkisedtanamoogk in a green brainstorm session Friday afternoon. Dave Jacke, author of Edible Forest Gardens, will lead a workshop on using permaculture principles to transform university grounds from decor to dinner.
Also participating will be regenerative design engineer Keith Zalzberg, master gardener and orchard expert Mark Fulford, New Forest Institute founder Andrea Reed, and UMaine Permaculture founders Bill Giordano and Julian Epps.
Following Friday afternoon’s workshop will be a food forest planting on Saturday 2 May from 10-3 at LongGreenHouse, with a bonfire to follow.
All events are free and open to the university and community. For more information, please contact Joline Blais via LongGreenHouse.
