WHAT 's it all about?
Forest Gardens are edible landscapes that follow the pattern of woodland systems.
A Forest Garden could be described as a relaxed, informal orchard with room for soft fruit and vegetables to grow. Utilising all available space and allowing nature to show us what it wants to do.

They are sustainable, low input, high yield resources, which are implemented in spaces ranging from small backyards to larger communal spaces and schools.
