Order now: Forest Gardening in Practice
"A really valuable survey of forest gardens, along with their gardeners' rationale for setting them up ... Tomas is one of the first to look at the relationship between people and forest gardens and writes with authority and clarity." Martin Crawford, Agroforestry Research Trust
"Forest Gardening finally gets the book it deserves ... Tomas' achievement here is a remarkable one: He manages to present an inspiring, aspirational picture of what forest gardens can be, and yet he also manages to keep his feet firmly on the ground." Treehugger blog
For three decades experimental forest gardens have been planted in temperate cities and rural sites, in households, neighbourhoods, community gardens, parks, market gardens and plant nurseries. Forest Gardening In Practice is the first in-depth review of forest gardening with living, best practice examples. It highlights the four core skills of forest gardeners: ecology, horticulture, design, cooperation.
The book is for hobby gardeners, smallholders, community gardeners and landscape professionals. It is presented in a richly illustrated A4-format with photographs, line drawings and diagrams, showing that forest gardens can be beautiful and functional at the same time.
Forest Gardening In Practice features:
* A history of forest gardening
*An overview of the ecological theory behind forest gardens
* 14 in-depth case studies of established forest gardens and edible landscapes in Europe and the USA
* Chapters on integrating learning, enterprises, working in community and public settings.
* A step-by-step guide to creating your own edible ecosystem
"... an essential addition to the library of life at a time when crucial strategies for both increasing food security and locking up carbon are needed more than ever."
Graham Burnett, permaculture author and trainer
