Guest Speakers

Richard Walker is the author of "Food Forestry North of the 49th". He is an expert on food forest gardening is a system that mimics nature , utilizing vertical and horizontal growing space by planting food bearing trees, plants, vines and shrubs, both edible and medicinal, in a system of functional layers. An early 80’s food forest trail blazer, he grew Canada’s first food forest - a three acre abundant mix of nut and fruit trees as well as medicinal herbs. Walker’s teaching, designs and writing are an authentic expression of his food forester’s way of life.

Ryan Foster is a herbalist, writer, and food forester. Together with a local group of people who share a vision, Ryan founded the Food Foresters Society of Canada in 2013. Today he works tirelessly to forge a synthesis between ancient wisdom and modern potentialities as a means of enriching the lives of everyone in our community. Ryan speaks regularly to groups throughout BC, empowering communities in their potential to reduce hunger through simple permacultural concepts such as "Food Forestry" within urban landscapes.
