Why Come on This Workshop?

This workshop will introduce you to some rarely seen plants, arranged using highly sustainable methods for growing food. You will learn everything you need to know to get started in your own forest gardening journey, including what to grow and how to combine it with other plants for a successful combination that looks great.

By the end of the workshop, you will have produced your own planting plan, including your choice of edible plants, arranged in a scale plan. This can be used to create your own mini forest garden at home or could be donated to a school, college or community garden to create an edible garden for others to enjoy.

Finish the day with a walk around the garden, collecting salad leaves and edible flowers to create your own forest salad to take home.
