Where do we plant it? What do we plant in it?, How do we get started?
These were the questions we asked ourselves when setting up our forest gardens a few years ago. Buying unusual permaculture plants from far away places is fun, but it isn’t always possible for people to do this, let alone to begin this way.
We decided to find out if we could create an urban food forest using common plants available from common garden centres for $100 or less in a small space.
This workshop gives people a jumping off point to create their own food forest right in their own backyard with commonly available plants from their local garden centre.
Some of the topics covered include:
- Permaculture Ethics and Principles.
- Zones of use.
- Home scale land assessment and analysis.
- What is a forest garden.
- Where to plant a forest garden.
- Guilds: plants for the food forest.
- Where to buy the plants.
- Useful plants.
- Utilizing found materials.
- Worksheets to help the learning process.
