In this two hour workshop organised by Glengall Wharf Gardens, we will explore some of the design principles that can help us create low-maintenance edible landscapes using perennial fruit and vegetables. These edible landscapes, on a larger scale also forest gardens, can provide food, but also other resources such as timber and firewood as well as valuable habitat for wildlife.
You will learn about the benefits of perennial vegetables, the nutrient cycle in food production and how we can use and support it. You will get hands on experience and learn practical skills, such as planning and designing a plot and preparing it for planting, propagation of perennial crops and pruning of soft fruit bushes.
By the end of the workshop you will feel inspired to introduce some new varieties of plants into your garden, make less work and more yield for yourself and the environment.
