Hosted by Howard EcoWorks

In this work­shop you will learn about the value of local forests and how they fit in to Howard County’s Green Infra­struc­ture Net­work, how you can grow your own Food For­est, and how to imple­ment strate­gies for har­vest­ing water to help make your land more diverse, pro­duc­tive, and eco­log­i­cally friendly. Pledge to pro­tect forests and take home a free tree or shrub!

Guest speaker Michael Judd has worked with agro-ecological and whole-system designs through­out the Amer­i­cas for nearly two decades, focus­ing on apply­ing per­ma­cul­ture and eco­log­i­cal design. His projects increase local food secu­rity and com­mu­nity health in both trop­i­cal and tem­per­ate grow­ing regions. He is the founder of Ecolo­gia Edi­ble & Eco­log­i­cal Land­scape Design and Project Bona Fide, an inter­na­tional non­profit sup­port­ing agro-ecology research.
