Food Forests in Chicago?

Coming up next...

Food Forests in Chicago?
Thursday, April 10th, 7-9 pm
Find out about progress in urban forest gardening and opportunities for creating them here, even with limited space. Includes examples of how appropriate companion plantings can improve productivity.

Learn how ecological garden design is applied with the goal of mimicking some of our major native ecosystems - the forest, woodland and savanna.

Growing paw paws are among the options. They are our largest native fruit, and have other valuable uses.

Some resources and details are listed here.

Presented by Rael Bassan, CUP coordinator.
