The AMETEK Food Forest is a community garden operating at the Renaissance Family Center Courtyard in Windham that features fruit trees, small fruits, herbs, and vegetables.    This is truly a garden designed to grow happiness!    

This presentation will focus on how to raise small fruits in healthy and sustainable ways in your own backyard.  You will also learn about the wonderful transformation of the Renaissance Family Center courtyard into a polyculture Food Forest.  Learn what polyculture is and how you can duplicate these improved gardening practices in your own landscape.  Take home a strawberry or raspberry plant and seeds to start your garden!  

This presentation is also sponsored by AMETEK, Renaissance Family Center, and University Hospitals Portage Medical Center.
