Wilson Environmental Landscape Design, Inc. (WEC) is pleased to announce the next installment in a series of presentations on "Santa Barbara's Sustainable Lifestyle"  produced in collaboration with Santa Barbara's Whole Foods Market. The seminar entitled“Grow Food. Save Money," will be held Tuesday, February 1st from 1:00 to 2:00 PM.

Stop by on your next visit to Whole Foods for a lecture by Daniel Wilson, president of Wilson Environmental Contracting, Inc. (WEC)! He will be addressing growing in the Santa Barbara winter season and why he thinks it is the perfect time to plant food.  WilsonEnv will guide people on the process of creating their very own Home Food ForestTM (HFF). A HFF is more than just a vegetable garden; it's a complete, organic ecosystem of trees, plants, pollinators, decomposers, soil, water, and more. WilsonEnv will provide those interested in building this new ecosystem with a full understanding of the variety of components which will make their new venture a success. 

According to Daniel Wilson, "The Whole Foods community is extremely interested in the connections between where and how their food is grown, as well as ways to live more gently on the planet, a philosophy that is shared by the team at WilsonEnv. I'm excited to contribute an educational component to the market experience by teaching people about the environment, climate, soils, seasons and food plants unique to the Santa Barbara area. Through live demonstrations, my goal is to illustrate sensible ways we can work with nature to utilize rain/storm water effectively, maintain easy-care California friendly landscaping and grow nutritious food in our backyards, in what I call a 'Home Food Forest'. It's better food, grown at home!"

Rae Van Seenus, marketing supervisor at Whole Foods Market states that "The Santa Barbara store is excited to expand our free educational seminars to include Daniel Wilson's expertise on organic and sustainable lifestyle measures. Our collaboration with WilsonEnv supports our company's 5th core value, which includes caring about Sustainable Agriculture, Wise Environmental Practices, Community Citizenship, and Integrity In All Business Dealings."
