Wat je gaat doen
We’ll show you a garden where growing food is less work than a vegetable patch, that’s better for biodiversity and more beautiful to boot. Welcome to the wildlife and edible forest garden tour! It’s in an idyllic location atop a wooded Ceredigion valley, with views of the Preseli hills in Pembrokeshire. On the tour, we look at the multi-layered and no-dig approach and how the garden can provide it’s own fertiliser, mulch and pest control. By letting nature do the heavy-lifting, the productive garden is lower maintenance whilst being better for climate change and biological diversity. Using your situations, we discuss applying the principles to any sized garden, whatever your experience. We briefly cover surveying techniques and show a simple plan, then examine the core design elements of how people will use the space and how to space the trees: looking at structures, utilities, propagation and paths. Finally, we’ll show you how to establish a forest garden: building propagation beds, planting windbreaks and trees, preparing the ground, planting the shrubs and creating the ground cover. Along the way, design decisions and planting combinations are highlighted.
I am passionate about forest gardening, moving to Wales with my family in 2015 to plant a forest garden and founding Forest Garden Wales to promote its practise. It’s a productive, sustainable, wildlife-friendly and low maintenance way of gardening. I’ve attended Martin Crawford’s Forest Garden Design Course at the Agroforestry Research Trust as well as grafting, planting and pruning workshops run by The People’s Orchard. I hosted monthly forest garden tours in the 2018 season, and I give forest garden talks to gardening clubs.
