Welcome to the showcase session to hear the facts about edible forest gardens!
What is an edible forest garden? Why and how can you set one up?
An edible forest garden is a layered and species-rich garden that mimics the principles of a forest ecosystem. It provides food and other benefits while improving the environment.
As the name suggests, an edible forest garden consists mainly of useful plants: edible trees, shrubs, vines and perennial herbaceous species. Supporting plants are often planted to manage and support the various functions and the overall garden.
We also take a look at a case study on AhlmanEdu.
The lecturer for this session is Joel Rosenberg.
Joel holds an MA in environmental art and works as a nature and wilderness guide. He has explored commercial forest gardens in England, Sweden, Denmark and other countries and has been running plant-related courses and tours since 2009. He is also the author of a book on growing nuts in Finland.
After Joel’s lecture, there will be time for questions and discussion from the audience.
So come and hear about the exciting world of edible gardens!
