The topic of Food Forestry is a timely and important one. In 2010 the UN released a report detailing how perennial polycultures are one of the only regenerative sustainable solutions to feeding humanity. Food Forests produce more over time and take less effort to maintain (hello lazy gardener!).

We're offering a little appetizer, a tasty treat and every penny of the event is going to Victoria's own Food Forest - Spring Ridge Commons and the budding Vancouver Island Permaculture Community Group. Yup, it's a FUN-drasier.

That's right you get a few hours of learning from Mr. Walker and get to help out local food forestry all by bringing yourself and a friend to an evening of fan-fruiting-tastic food forestry fun [and no we won't ask you to say this 4 time fast to get in, however now that I think about it I could just for kicks]. Richard has more then 30 years of experience implementing food forests in Canada.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable. has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
