The Edible Xeriscape by Bill Melvin
Wednesday, April 17th, 2013http://conservationcenter.org/
6:00pm - 8:00pm
Few joys of life compare to gathering fruits, vegetables and herbs right from your yard—free, fresh and vine-ripened. The thought of creating such an oasis can be daunting, especially for the novice gardener. With a little bit of help, your dreams can become reality in just a short amount of time. Come explore how to go about such an endeavor from start to finish, applying your dreams to paper, laying out an edible landscape for year’s worth of fulfillment.
Together we will explore the gamut of edible goodies that work well in our arid environment. A focus will be made to address what is the most appropriate and desirable specie’s and cultivars for their hardiness, taste, and storing abilities. Wild edible foods will also be discussed that supply delicious treats with truly minimal requirements. Numerous Permacultural techniques will be integrated and explored to help you maximize your land’s potential and minimize your energy inputs.
Speaker: Bill Melvin is owner, lead designer, and chief consultant for Ecoscape based here in Boulder, Colorado. Bill is a graduate of the University of Colorado’s School of Environmental Design, has been a certified Permaculture Designer for almost 15 years, and teaches throughout the region on sustainable land use issues. He has been a volunteer with the Fourmile Fire Protection District for over 10 years, was actively working to protect the mountain communities during the Fourmile fire, and now is working to rehabilitate the burn zone.
