Brochure Text

A forest garden is primarily a food-producing habitat, based on the model of a natural woodland. Comprised of several layers which are usually composed of fruit and nut trees, fruit bushes, perennial vegetables and herbs, it can be tailored to fit any garden. With informed design, a forest garden will be low maintenance and highly productive for many years to come. The course will cover: Concepts and principles of forest gardening. Crops and other uses of forest gardens. Design and selection of plants. The basics of plant establishment and maintenance. An inspirational site visit to a local forest garden. No prior knowledge of the subject is needed, although some further gardening and fruit growing knowledge may be necessary to practice forest gardening after the course. Dr Angie Polkey is a permaculture and conservation adviser and teacher, who has been practising forest gardening in various forms since 1996.
