Forests are self-fertile assemblages of mutually beneficial trees, plants, fungi, animals, birds and invertebrates, which are productive throughout the seasons and offer niches for flora and fauna to prosper in a mutually supportive way. They are sustained by the natural cycles of life where the outputs of each species meet the needs of each other in intricate and sustaining ways.
Forest gardens are low input / high output systems, tailored to meeting the maximum productivity from minimum work, by careful thinking, planning, design and execution.

If demand continues to grow, as it has, we will run more courses so watch this space for further updates.
This course is run from Garden Cottage and, since the garden is just 1/5 acre (0,08 of a hectare) and our home, there is no accommodation on site. However Coldstream is a beautiful town set in the wonderful Scottish Borders and, as such, boasts a fine array of hotels, guest houses and campsites.

We have noticed that people who seek Forest Gardening courses often overlap with folks who want an introduction to Permaculture. So for the third year running we combine the two in a two day course.
