What is Forest Gardening? Come along and find out with renowned permaculturalist Tomas Remiarz. We will use the early stages of Queenswood’s Forest Garden as an example of how to put this technique into practice.

Forest gardens mimic nature in order to grow food sustainably and stay in tune with wildlife. Find out how this works in practice with permaculture renowned Tomas Remiarz.

The day will cover:

  • What is a Forest Garden - brief introduction
  • Working like nature - observation exercises
