2pm - 5pm
In this session you’ll spend quality time in the forest garden and learn about how we can design edible woodland spaces to mimic the structure of a natural forest – the most stable and sustainable type of ecosystem in this climate. You can discover how to implement these principles within an urban context and beyond.
After the session we will have a social fire and celebrate ‘Samhain’, which marks the beginning of winter.
Celebrating Samhain is about honoring Mother Nature’s cycle. It is the end of the growing season, the leaves are no longer green, the flowers stop blooming, the grass stops growing, and the frost starts creeping in bringing death with it. The Earth turns within itself, things start getting ready for hibernation, to sleep.
