Brighton and Seaford: Forest Gardening

At a forest gardening course in Seaford and Brighton, Sussex, my fellow students and I learned about the theories of forest gardening and had a chance to exercise these ideas and put several theories into practice.  Run by the Brighton Permaculture Trust, this course taught us the concepts and principles of forest gardening; approaches to designing a forest garden and the selection of trees and plants; crops, yields and other uses of forest gardens; and the planting, establishment and maintenance of a forest garden.
