How can we mimic the structure and function of natural ecosystems while designing food-producing ecologies for city environments? This workshop explores the vision, theory, design, and practice of urban ecosystem agriculture using the temperate deciduous forest ecosystem as the model. We will focus on designing small spaces that may need extensive site preparation, as well as other scenarios of particular interest to city gardeners. A combination of lectures and experiential exercises will clarify practical design principles, practices, patterns, and processes for city garden design and management.
