Forest Gardening in Practice : Skill Share

 

 

 

 

We are excited to be hosting the brilliant Tomas Remiarz as the guest speaker for our final skill share of 2017.

Tomas will be presenting an interactive workshop and visual exhibition from his widely recommended new book, Forest Gardening In Practice, full of case studies of real life forest gardens in temperate climates. We look forward to some lively discussion, and Tomas will be available to answer your questions. So even if you are completely new to the subject, this is a perfect chance to engage your budding curiosity. Perhaps you are familiar with forest gardens already...? Have something to share? All welcome.

 

About the book:

'A forest garden is a place where nature and people meet halfway, between the canopy of trees and the soil underfoot. It doesn’t have to look like a forest – what’s important is that natural processes are allowed to unfold, to the benefit of plants, people and other creatures. The result is an edible ecosystem.  For three decades experimental forest gardens have been planted in temperate cities and rural sites, in households, neighbourhoods, community gardens, parks, market gardens and plant nurseries. Forest Gardening In Practice is the first indepth review of forest gardening with living, best practice examples. It highlights the four core skills of forest gardeners: ecology, horticulture, design, cooperation. It is for hobby gardeners, smallholders, community gardeners and landscape professionals.'

 

Tomas Remiarz has been involved in creating and maintaining forest gardens across the UK and Europe for nearly 20 years. He is currently involved in a sustainable rural housing project project on a 7-acre site in Herefordshire. As a founder member of the Permaculture Association’s research advisory board he is particularly interested in studying polycultures and has produced several reports on the subject.
