On the Forest Gardening course at Salmenrannan tila (Laitila, Varsinais-Suomi) you'll learn with expert and author Joel Rosenberg – and meet like-minded people.
The course starts at 11 am and ends at 5 pm.
The course begins with a lecture & discussion about the forest garden's structure, principles and plant species. The session also covers forest gardening examples from Finland and abroad. After the lecture we'll tour the site and it's 13 years old forest garden and nut growing trial site. You’ll gain knowledge about tree crops, shrub crops, perennials and ground covers – and hear about the successes and mistakes made. We'll do practical design exercises that help you to start designing your own forest garden after the course.
The course includes a vegetarian lunch with a salad made from the local forest garden ingredients. Coffee & tea included.
You'll receive driving instructions to the course venue after the payment.
