Education for Edible Landscaping Professionals

Continuing ed for foodsaping professionals who design, install & maintain ecological edible landscapes.

We develop some courses in house and list products from other foodscapers whose work we think our audience will find interesting, engaging, and inspiring.

We often earn affiliate commission when we refer you to our partners. By offering foodscaper-teachers our marketing services in this way, we are able to curate a list of continuing education materials we are proud of without restricting you to what we produce in house.
