Ayurvedic Agroforestry

From the context of ecological design for healthy humans and healthy food systems, this workshop will explore the foundations of each Ayurveda and Agroforestry, then utilize Ayurvedic wisdom to learn how to design and tend place-based edible ecosystems. Using elemental approaches to maximize health and balance, we'll discuss medicine plants from the dual lenses of Ayurveda and agroforestry (plant guilds) that can benefit people and the land. From the elemental constitution of landscapes to permaculture plant guilds, we will use Ayurvedic language to see the capacity of permaculture design as a healing modality for imbalanced landscapes. Basics of Ayurvedic diet and herbal wisdom will be highlighted so participants walk away with next steps, whether or not they have a garden to tend.
