    Wayne Weisman and Dan Halsey at Kinstone
    S3439 Cole Bluff Lane, Fountain City WI 54629

    In these intensive five days you will learn to identify trees and plants and come to an understanding of their significance in the landscape and delineate how to use plants for food, medicine and utility. We will observe trees and plants in their natural environment, and through observation, find methods to employ them as windbreaks, shelterbelts, habitat for animals, and companions for other plants that contribute to health and increased yields. Plant guilds, food forests, basic biology, basic botany, effects of weather on vegetation, interactions with animals, and the processes of various habitats and ecosystems (including farm ecosystems) will be discussed and examined. We will cover plant propagation, grafting, seed saving and more. The planting of prairies and native plants will be reviewed in detail as we review and observe the Kinstone Prairie planted in November 2013. We will explore prairie, woodland, savanna, pasture, gardens, farm fields, and other ecosystems found at or near Kinstone. Children ages 13-17 may register with a registered adult. Prerequisites: None Organization: Readings, narrated power point presentations, field skills, hands-on techniques and practice.
