Create your own little Eden with fruit and nuts weighing down the branches of your trees and delicious, unusual edibles available all year round – without all the hassle of a vegetable patch!
Join Jo Homan to learn about some edible perennial plants and trees, how to identify them and what to do with them:-
- learn the basics of forest gardening – what makes them work, their structure and what they produce
- try eating some forest garden produce (a light lunch is included)
Jo Homan has been teaching people forest gardening skills since starting Edible Landscapes London in Finsbury Park in 2010. Among her favourite forest garden nibbles are lovage, saltbush and shasta daisy leaves; jostaberry, raspberry and medlar fruits; calendula, Judas tree and Allium flowers; chestnuts and acorn nuts. Jo is also the Training Manager for The Orchard Project and enjoys teaching people about community orchards.
