Summary: 

The concept of Syntropic Agriculture was devised by the Swiss/Brazilian researcher and botanist Ernst Gotsch from what is broadly known in Brazil as successional agroforestry. Syntropic Agriculture aims to produce food, timber and fibre through a process based agriculture with minimal external inputs and without chemical fertilisers and pesticides. The aim is to build resources such as water, topsoil and biodiversity as we produce our food. Syntropic Agriculture has been proving to be financially viable and effective in many climates and biomes.
Participants will learn:
The history and principles of successional agroforestry,
How to implement and manage those systems,
How to choose where to implement these systems in their properties,
How to harmonise these systems with nature's patterns (sun, winds, topography, local flora, etc.),
How to choose appropriate plant consortiums to each stage and soil condition of the system,
How to choose and plan the production of value adding produce.
Facilitators: Gabriel Menezes is an agroecological farmer in Campo Largo, South of Brazil. Gabriel has successfully integrated Permaculture Design principles and techniques as well as agroecological ones to his agroforestry-based farm. Since 2007 Gabriel has been working as a consultant in the planning and implementation of successional agroforestry systems (aka Syntropic Agriculture). As one of the co-founders of Simbiose Agroflorestal (https://simbiose.agr.br/somos-nos/).

Summary: 

Forest gardening is an increasingly popular approach to growing food sustainably and efficiently through making use of the beneficial relationships of a natural healthy ecosystem, maximising the use of the garden’s vertical dimension, and increasing the range of perennial food plants to fill all available niches.

This two-day course will introduce you to the forest garden approach and its benefits, teaching you the basics of designing a forest garden, and the methods of establishing and maintaining it. The approach can be used whether you are converting an existing garden or allotment, want to grow more edible species in a forest, or are starting with a blank canvas.
There will also be an overview of the wide variety of trees, shrubs and perennial vegetables that can be grown and enjoyed for food, fibre, dyes, medicines, fuel, and pure beauty.
The course will include a practical element: you will use what you've learnt to create a design for a forest garden around our course venue, Bridgend Farmhouse.
