Want to create abundance in your own back garden or community growing space?
Forest garden design packs useful species into a small area to create an intensive and highly productive system. Learn how by design, a tree system can provide a diverse range of foods, requiring little maintenance and with few offsite inputs.
On this two days course we will cover:
* how a forest garden works
* design elements of a forest garden
* useful permaculture design principles
* maintaining and building soil fertility
Participants are invited to bring their own designs to work on in small teams. We will show you how to conduct a site assessment, assess resources, check soil types and how to meet the needs of the land and the people. We will teach site surveying and mapping skills, which you will use to create your design.
