Event Description

Forest gardens are a way of growing food in a low-maintenance​, productive polyculture which makes the most efficient use of space and natural processes.

Learn all about forest gardens and get a qualification on the way on this exciting new course! One week in December, one week in March. You can gain 16 credits, a nationally recognized level 2 Award in Horticulture and a new unit 'Creating A Forest Garden'. This course is for people who are passionate about plants, especially the edible ones.

We cover many things including:

- learning all about over 100 edible plants, including their Latin names!

- learning how to care for, propagate and eat many plants

- the science behind soil, fertility and plant nutrition

- designing and managing a forest garden.


You will be expected to design a real or imaginary forest garden as part of the course.

WEEK ONE: 1st- 5th December 2014

Gap of 13 weeks

WEEK TWO: 9th-13th March 2015

This course is subsidised by the Manor House PACT project (​​.uk/) and is therefore very reasonably priced. Priority for bookings will be given to people living in our target area until October 27th. Those outside the area will be put on a waiting list and told on 28th October if they have a place.

Check this map http://www.tran​sitionfinsburyp​​map to see if you live in the PACT area.
