A hedgerow is a beautiful, functional and biologically diverse feature in many rural, suburban, and urban landscapes. These multi-tiered collections of trees, shrubs, ground covers, vines, flowers and herbs create bountiful borders for fields, waterways, and city lots. During this three day workshop you will learn to design and establish different types of hedgerows for:

  • soil stabilization
  • insectaries and nectaries
  • biodiverse habitat for wildlife
  • windbreaks
  • abundant and delicious food for people
  • privacy screens
  • beauty and fragrance
  • noise reduction
  • income potential
  • ... and more!

We will explore concepts of soil preparation, plant selection, planting techniques, irrigation, and ways to reduce maintenance, with ample time for understanding budgets, phase planning, and time-lines.  Each day includes classroom theory, design, and easy-to-replicate hands-on hedgerow projects.

Course fee includes farm lunch, snacks, materials for hands-on projects, and a student handbook with resources and explanations. Optional evening lectures and slide shows on Friday and Saturday nights are also included.

 We have a limited number of partial scholarships, barter, and work-trade opportunities available.  Please contact us for details, and include work-trade skills and barter items!
