Event Details

Hardy kiwis, pawpaws and asian pear!

More than 70 trees and shrubs of 30 different species were planted two years ago in a permaculture yard near Pleasant Park and Alta Vista to contribute to the landscape through edible crops, shade, and nutrients.

Join us as we talk with Sean Butler, yard designer, for a discussion on the planning stages, then take a tour of this not-so-average backyard to check on the trees progress!

We'll follow the tour by all rolling up our sleeves to tame a few undesirable plants (virginia creeper, goutweed, and more)

  • What food trees and shrubs are doing well? What isn't doing as well as hoped?
  • Theory vs reality of creating a food forest, discussions with two permaculturists with plenty of hands-on experience
  • How to turn the "problem" of rapidly spreading wild plants ("weeds" or "invasives") into the solution - free mulch and biomass to build your soil!

You will have the opportunity to chat with other tree-enthusiasts and ask any tree questions you might have, and take away learnings that may inform tree planting choices in your yard, or around the city.


Note: spots are limited, sign up soon - and do let us know if you need to cancel so we can open it up to someone else. Full details, including address, will be emailed to those who sucessfully sign up for the event in a confirmation email from eventbrite.
