I'm really excited to announce that Urban Roots will be hosting Eric Toensmeier for a two day workshop on Edible Forest Gardening and the Commercial Food Forest. Eric co-authored the book Edible Forest Gardens and specializes in designing, growing, and teaching about Perennial food systems.

I have attached the flier here. Please pass it on to anyone you know who might be interested.

Space is limited so we are encouraging people to sign up soon.

check out Urban Roots Website

and Eric's website Perennial Solutions

Also, this course is part of a new modular, year long Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) Course being offered through Urban Roots. This course fulfills 2 days of the 13 day curriculum. The PDC will include courses by other professionals in the field as well as portions taught by myself

For those interested in taking the complete PDC, we are offering an Introduction to Permaculture course that fulfills 2 days as well. This will take place at Urban Roots on Sept. 17-19 (Tuesday - Thurs) from 1 pm - 6 pm. We are offering it at $40 / day or $100 for all three. I will be teaching this course. If you are interested, Contact Jeff Bryant at Urban Roots to register. His contact details are on the flier and at Urban Roots website.

Thanks so much,
Neil Bertrando
