You might be interested in the following course, run by our friend Kevin Mascarenhas of Natural Flow Design. For those not already familiar with the term, forest gardening is a holistic method of growing edible trees and perennials together in carefully designed spaces. It’s perfect for urban food production as it makes optimal use of available space and once established Forest Gardens need minimal maintenance, making them great for busy city-folk.
