Guilds are the foundation of Food Forest design. Learn about the component plants and the philosophy behind this permaculture-rooted approach, where all the plants have multiple uses and support each other in a system inspired by natural ecosystems.
Get an overview of guilds and food forest philosophy, then tour each guild and learn about the various plants and their roles. This class takes place in Edible Evanston's Food Forest. Many of the ideas can be applied to any garden.
