With the impacts of the climate crisis being increasingly felt, how can we make our food systems more resilient?

Forest gardening is part of the solution. Forests are all around in nature. They are great teachers and incredibly resilient and self-sustaining ecosystems.

How can we use these principles of the forest to grow our food with far less work and fewer inputs?

How can we integrate edible trees, shrubs and perennials, and embrace wild plants in our food growing spaces?

Forest gardens are spaces of abundance, diversity and beauty, helping to sustain planetary and personal health. Find out how in this forest gardening masterclass.
