Permaculture design facilitates an ongoing relationship between people and plants. Join Alexa Abner and Jessica Star as they add the next additions to their food forest gardens as a part of their continuous edible fencing project. Perennial plants are the anchor of their market gardens, providing reliable crops for their community supported agriculture (CSA) program, farmers' market customers, and partner chefs each season. Learn the history and uses of the plants they are cultivating. Take home your newfound knowledge and a few cuttings to get started on your own edible fence.

Cost and Registration: $10, includes perennial plant giveaway. Pre-registration required. To register, go to www.yogiandthefarmer.com or call (513) 746-6137 or (859) 466-9107 by October 13.
