Welcome, on this page you’ll find eight video lessons that will be your guide through the process of creating food forest guilds.
MODULE 1: FOOD FOREST GUILDS – THE BASICS
In this module, you’ll find all the information you need on how to prepare for the course, and I’ll give you a rundown of the basics for food forest guilds.
By the end of this module, you’ll understand what food forest guilds are and how they work.
I would not, however, suggest that you start Module 2 unless you’ve already completed this module, so make sure you learn the fundamentals before moving to the design phase of the course!
Short introduction to the course, its structure and a few words about me…
Understanding the basics of food forest guilds, how they work and a few real life examples.
MODULE 2. GUILD DESIGN
This module is the pivotal to your eventual success. In these three lessons, you’ll learn the three-step process of guild creation, namely choosing your design strategy, choosing your plants and designing your guilds.
By the end of this module you’ll understand the guild build framework and be able to create your own custom guilds.
Make sure to check out the worksheets provided in Lesson 3 (Choosing Plants) as you’ll need them to complete this lesson before you move to Lesson 4 (Guild Design).
Choosing the appropriate guild design strategy.
How to make a master list of suitable plants for your prospective guilds.
How to assemble the chosen plant species into effective groupings – guilds.
MODULE 3. EXPANDING INTO FOOD FORESTS AND GUILD ESTABLISHMENT
In this module, you will learn how to connect individual food forest guilds (patches) into a food forest and we’ll touch on how you would establish your first guild on the site.
By the end of the module, you’ll have a clear understanding how food forests work and a rough timeline for your activities.
This is the last module, so if you have any further questions let me know!
