with Tomas Remiarz, author of “Forest Gardening in Practice”

This course will teach you how to design, plant and maintain a forest garden. We will use the land and people around for a practical example. You will learn to observe the land around you, ask questions of the people using the site and analyse the gathered information. We will explore how to combine trees, shrubs and perennial plants and how to organise planting, harvesting and maintenance. The third day will be dedicated to coaching you on your own food forest design.
