Food Forest In Your Backyard – workshop video

By 10th July 20202 Comments

This week’s online lockdown gardening workshop focused on permaculture design and principles you could apply to create a productive and nature-friendly food forest in your backyard.

Carole Egner is a Permaculture practitioner, teacher and research scientist. She lives in Aberdour with her husband and son where she is currently developing a 5 acre Permaculture demonstration site, including a market garden, forest garden and ecological research centre. She gave us a whirlwind primer on permaculture – an increasingly poopular innovative framework for creating sustainable ways of living and growing.
