I had the great pleasure of meeting Caroline Aitken this week. Caroline and Matt Dunwell are the lead teachers on the Permaculture Design Course I visited at Ragmans Farm. As well as being a fab permie teacher and all-round cracker on the ukelele, Caroline is the author of the fabulous Food From Your Forest Garden.
Some of you will have heard me enthuse about this book in the past: it fills a logical niche in the forest garden literature by guiding us in what to do once our garden starts producing!
Ragmans is a well-known permaculture demonstration farm which has been developed by Matt Dunwell since 1990. It also has a long history as a permaculture training base, including courses with Bill Mollison in the early days.
p.s. Foodie trivia: Matt co authored the first Local Food Directory in 1997
