Permaculture Education Collective
In 2015, the Beacon Food Forest began a program to hold classes both on and off-site in order to further the understanding of food forest principles as well topics that further the mission of the Beacon Food Forest. Here you'll find a selection of current classes, as well as a list of past classes brought to you by the team at the Beacon Food Forest.
If you dream of gaining the knowledge, skills and hands-on experience for growing food forests, this is the class for you.
Taught by locally active permaculture educators and practitioners, we will help you understand the interconnected systems that make food forests healthy and productive, as well give you plenty of time to spend with other like-minded people.
There will be three sessions of classroom time to introduce you to forest gardening methods (please review the lessons below). We will also spend time at the Beacon Food Forest to learn by experience, and then you'll participate as a leader in community work parties. We will be following a Chinese Proverb's wise words: "Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I will learn." You must be able to participate in all classes. Keep your eye on current classes for the next stewardship program. These programs are scheduled every quarter.
This educational experience is provided by the Beacon Food Forest with a grant from King Conservation District.
