BOOKING http://www.ediblelandscapeslondon.org.uk/CAFG_5_Booking
MORE INFO http://www.ediblelandscapeslondon.org.uk/CAFG_5
Imagine growing your own apples, berries, rhubarb and strawberries. Or artichokes, hops, rocket and thyme. By using plants with different heights, you'd be using all the space in your garden. AND with a single blitz of planting, you'd enjoy a rolling harvest throughout the year, every year. Come and learn about forest gardening - a no-dig approach that's kind to wildlife and to your back. Creating A Forest Garden is for people who are truly passionate about plants, especially the edible ones. You can even gain level two qualifications worth 16 credits - a nationally recognised Award in Horticulture and the new 'Creating A Forest Garden' unit.

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN
* a thorough understanding of forest gardening
* how to design and maintain forest gardens
* how to recognise more than 50 plants - including learning their botanical names
* how to care for, propagate and eat these plants
* the science behind soil, fertility and plant nutrition
* why forest gardens are part of our food production future
NB You will be expected to design a real or imaginary forest garden as part of the course.

Summary: 

Forests are self-fertile assemblages of mutually beneficial trees, plants, fungi, animals, birds and invertebrates, which are productive throughout the seasons and offer niches for flora and fauna to prosper in a mutually supportive way. They are sustained by the natural cycles of life where the outputs of each species meet the needs of each other in intricate and sustaining ways.

Forest gardens are low input / high output systems, tailored to meeting the maximum productivity from minimum work, by careful thinking, planning, design and execution.

Come and see how it works at Garden Cottage.
