A 2-day introduction to the concept and techniques of forest gardening, involving theory and practice from visioning to harvesting.

About this Event

Come along and join us for this workshop where you will immerse yourself in the world of creating and maintaining a Forest Garden. You will gain knowledge on the establishment, as well as the ongoing maintenance of a successful orchard ecosystem. We will demystify the necessary art everybody should know about the workings of their Forest Garden, as well as design, soil biology, and health management.

This is a 2-day introduction to the concept and techniques of forest gardening, involving theory and practice from visioning to harvesting.

The 2-day course will cover:

Benefits of forest gardening;

  • Ecological principles;
  • Site selection and design;
  • Integration of permaculture principles and design process;
  • Architecture;
  • Succession;
  • The Underground Economy;
  • Species selection; and
  • Site preparation, establishment and maintenance; harvesting.

Edible forest gardening is the art and science of putting plants together in woodland-like patterns that forge mutually beneficial relationships, creating a garden ecosystem that is more than the sum of its parts. You can grow fruits, nuts, vegetables, herbs, mushrooms, other useful plants, and animals in a way that mimics natural ecosystems. You can create a beautiful, diverse, high-yield garden. If designed with care and deep understanding of ecosystem function, you can also design a garden that is largely self-maintaining.
