If you're looking to create a landscape that's easy, low-maintenance and eco-friendly, and that can also be highly productive when you want it to, there's no better system than forest gardening.
Forest gardening is also a traditional land-use that has been tried and tested around the world since pre-historic times. And it's been so successful that it's still found around the world today. We put together this short video as an introduction to these traditional systems found around the world, and some of the lessons we modern gardeners can learn from them.
This video is one part of our online Introduction to Forest Gardening class, which we'll be opening up for Spring registration in mid February.
And if you live in our region, check out our Community Supported Forest Gardening program, which includes a full season of classes, online content, plant material, and consultation - everything you need to get your forest garden, Permaculture, or ecological gardening project started. https://lilliehousekzoo.wordpress.com/services-at-lillie-house/
