Permaculture is a set of techniques and principles for designing naturally sustainable landscapes.  When applied to growing fruit, a permaculture approach focuses on soil health, planting suitable companion plants, and attracting natural predators.   Instructor Kimberly Leeper is owner of Mariposa Naturescapes, specializing in native and edible plant design and installation.  She is committed to helping people create  more sustainable gardens and ecosystems  and teaches workshops on Food Forests, Gardening for Wildlife, Natural Gardening, and Rain Gardens.

Focus on Fruit is a series of monthly fruit tree care classes sponsored by the West Seattle Nursery and Garden Center and City Fruit. Class size is limited. Pre-register to reserve your spot by calling West Seattle Nursery at 206-935-9276. Classes are held outdoors, so dress for the weather.
