FOOD SECURITY AND RESILIENCE.

• How do I design and plan a food garden for year round supply ?

• How do I grow in a way that preserves the system for future generations so they too can be food secure.

• How do I create a system that is resilience to climate change impacts and extreme weather events?

This workshop is designed to help you answer these question and get you started on designing your own self sufficiency food garden.
