Richard Walker in an amazing teacher and i would recommend the course to anyone in a second. I was truely amazed of how much info Mr.Walker has and not just book knowledge but also that “profound knowledge” that changes a persons thinking and view of life once you hear his wisdom. Loved learning about the “brix” and his take on the importance of purifying drinking water.

Richard Walker is a man of immense wisdom and care for his environment. With an edge of perfectionism and a strive for the highest of yum factors, he is truly a man of excellence in his field. Taking this workshop was one of the best decisions I have made all year and has sky rocketed me into a lifelong path of permaculture, community activism and food forestry. I truly enjoyed the tangents that would take place during this course and it made it feel very personal and accomodating. Hey and if you have any problems, just put some EM on it!

I just finished a weekend workshop with Richard Walker, and it has been a true treat! The knowledge that Richard has is vast, and anyone who attends a course of his will witness this in the first hour. Richard is approachable, friendly, and as enthusiastic about food forestry as anyone could be! If you are interested in sustainability and food forestry then seeing Richard talk is a must!

To all ‘Stewards of the Land’, I would highly recommend Richard Walker’s Food Forestry Workshop. His lifelong experience and expertise in living with nature has surely given me hope for developing the Food Forestry system, which in my opinion, is the only way to go to feed the growing population.┬áRichards’ classes and presentations were easy to listen to and provided me with new plant knowledge. The ‘hands-on’ grafting was a valuable learning tool.Personally, you cannot put a money value on something extraordinary like this workshop.Food Forestry is a wonderful legacy to leave for our children and our children’s children.I will always be grateful to have had the honour to cross paths with Richard.

Richard speaks from his heart and from his own life experiences. He holds an incredible wealth of knowledge about growing and maintaining a food forest which he so happily and simply offers to everyone. He was a joy to listen to and took the time to engage and connect with all his eager learners. I came out of the course feeling empowered and excited to begin planning my very own forest of food.

This workshop was perfect for me as I am in the process of designing garden areas, and now a food forest, on the land I live on, to nourish and sustain my family. The material in the workshop is ideal for anyone looking for a career niche in the field of food growing, propogation, and herbalism. Much recommended!

Richard showed me that growing a food forest can be fun, practical, and even a good idea economically. I’d been intrigued by food forestry for a few years but to listen to Richard speak and share his wealth of experience really helped me to see that this is something I can do and have a lot of fun with. I left with so much information about food plants and had fun trying my hand at grafting. I was so inspired by Richard, his information, and his photos that I’m itching to get my own food forest started! I would recommend this workshop to anyone interested in growing their own food or starting a nursery.

This course will pay for itself if you successfully graft less than ten trees on your property. The knowledge of how to create low maintenance food systems is very empowering and facilitates a feeling of wealth rather than poverty. This is one way to get off of the perpetual capitalist treadmill and on to living life.
