Forest Garden prep

The Forest Garden weekend course kicks off next Friday. I consciously postponed the course to January so that I could implement some of the lessons learned with Rowe Morrow last month. Look out for more fun & games and less lecture, people!

I’m excited to be sharing some of the information I’ve gleaned on my own forest garden journey. I remember wrestling with whether to make the trek to Milkwood, Mudgee, to do the 9 day intensive with Dave Jacke in 2013. So glad I did! That started a series of explorations that included going to the ‘States the next year to do a teacher training course with Dave (in Tennessee no less!) and touring various gardens in the US as part of that trip, then going to the UK for six weeks in 2017, which included courses with Martin Crawford and visits to many more gardens.
