Forest Gardening -the importance of fungi and soil

Summary information
field_summary: 

This third Forest Gardening Course on the 27th-28th March will uniquely focus on how fungi can help to establish and strengthen a Forest Garden ecosystem.

Fungi play an essential role in our ecosystems, working away in shady unnoticed corners, providing services that we are, only in recent times, becoming properly aware of.

A mix of theory and practical sessions, the course will also look at soil and soil structure, how it's created and how you can protect it. In addition we will investigate wild food and foraging as an aid to replicating natural systems in a Forest Garden. The practical sessions will cover log inoculation, fungi propagation techniques and further planting of the Forest Garden.
