About this item

A forest garden is a place where nature and people meet halfway--between the canopy of trees and the soil underfoot. It doesn’t have to look like a forest: what’s important is that natural processes are allowed to unfold, to the benefit of plants, people and other creatures. The result is an edible ecosystem. For three decades experimental forest gardens have been planted in temperate cities and rural sites, in households, neighborhoods, community gardens, parks, market gardens and plant nurseries. Forest Gardening In Practice offers an in-depth review of forest gardening with living, best practice examples. It highlights the four core skills of forest gardeners: ecology, horticulture, design, and cooperation. It is for hobby gardeners, smallholders, community gardeners and landscape professionals.

Forest Gardening In Practice features:

  • A history of forest gardening
  • A step-by-step guide to creating your own edible ecosystem
  • 14 in-depth case studies of established forest gardens and edible landscapes in Europe and the U.S.
  • Chapters on integrating animals, learning, enterprises, working in community and public settings
