Food Forestry - an introduction with botanist Sue Holland
We’ve heard about rising temperatures, monoculture farming and food being transported thousands of miles. Food Forestry offers an alternative that’s good for individual wellbeing, as well as the planet.
This 1-day course covers:
↟ What is a Food Forest?
↟ Learn how a Food Forest fits in to a permaculture system.
↟ Can you grow one in the corner of your garden? (Spoiler alert: yes.)
↟ Discover what you need to get started.
↟ Learn how to grow your own food and know its provenance.
↟ Appreciate the practical benefits of biodiversity.
↟ Come away with an understanding as to whether Food Forestry is right for you.
On the day we’ll listen, talk, walk, visit a Food Forest, see some case histories, have small group discussions and lunch.

Awliscombe is 2 miles northwest from Honiton on the A373. Coming from Honiton, in the middle of the village on your right side you'll see the Honiton Inn then Chinston Close then, 10 metres later, the sign for 'The Old Rectory'. (If you go too far then you’ll pass the new vicarage then the primary school.)
There is some parking on our drive. Alternatively, there are laybys just past our house (nearer the school) or the village car park (by the pub).
