Lookin' Swale! Series 2023

Before you install plants, rain tanks, and grey water systems, be sure your landscape can handle and harvest as much water as possible - passively. Learn to slow, spread, and sink water through earthwork applications like swales and basins with Diane Kennedy of Finch Frolic Garden Permaculture. Sponsored by the County of San Diego. Free, includes Garden entry.

Finch Frolic Garden Permaculture is the only food forest and habitat garden of its kind open to the public in Southern California. It serves as an educational facility as well as a poison-free refuge for hundreds of species of wildlife, and as a food bank for the owners Diane and Miranda Kennedy. On 1.6 acres, this 10-year-old garden uses permaculture design to grow with limited water and no chemical fertilizers, insecticides or herbicides. Fruit, vegetables, herbs, timber bamboo, ornamentals and lots of native plants work together to form a thriving, useful and regenerative garden community.

Diane Kennedy has an AA in Landscape Architecture, Sustainable Landscape and Turf Management, certificates in Permaculture Design, Irrigation, and is a Quality Water Efficient Landscaper. Diane is a co-leader of the Fallbrook Land Conservancy’s Native Plant Restoration Team. A former SDC Senior Park Ranger, she has been designing, consulting, writing and lecturing about permaculture since 2011. She gives educational tours through her permaculture food forest, Finch Frolic Garden, in Fallbrook. She blogs at www.vegetariat.com, and writes for other publications such as the Creekside Chat for the Moosa Creek Native Plant Nursery’s newsletter.

Miranda Kennedy has a BS in Fisheries and Wildlife Science specializing in songbirds, and specializes in collecting data on and identifying wildlife, plants and native habitats. She is a skilled and experienced flora and fauna surveyor, and permaculture gardener.

She volunteers with the Native Plant Restoration Team with the Fallbrook Land Conservancy.
