Create Your Own Food Forest!

Surround yourself by beauty, biodiversity and an abundance of food, medicine, fuel, building materials, and more through the ancient art of food forestry!

This workshop will take us through all the steps you need to create your very own urban or rural food forest: design, plant guilds and types, planting technique, succession, soil fertility, low maintenance planning, and transitioning your yard from lawn or garden into a thriving food forest! All students will receive a master handout of plants for food forests in our bio-region.

Nineteeen artists and groups will be featured in their own studios or in central locations, which will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days.

The Texada Art Studio Tour will include a fabulous range of fabric arts, stained glass, lapidary and jewellry, beadwork, garden sculptures, photography, stitchery and much more. Throughout the tour, artists will be on hand to discuss their styles and techniques and to share their passion for the arts with visitors.

Guests can travel between studios in their own vehicles, or can take advantage of driver escorts who can pick them up from the ferry and return them there after the tour. Lunches at the Texada Arts, Culture and Tourism Centre will be available both days with live music and artists to talk to. Visitors are encouraged to come for both days as there's a lot to see.
