Forest Garden - an edible ecosystem on our doorsteps?
The practice of Forest Gardening changes the mindset of a food consumer to one of food citizen, someone actively engaged in or supporting the local growing and preserving of nourishing, minimally-packaged food. Forest Gardens are a meaningful step towards creating food resilience in the face of climate change. Anyone with a patch of land can grow a diverse, high yield, nutrient dense Forest Garden.
How can we offer another vision of using gardens and open spaces that provide intergenerational access to local food that nourishes us as well as supporting more climate resilient ecosystems?
‘Food production and its quality will become as significant as sea level rise and this enterprising project will open eyes to the potential of forest gardens that I hope leaders of many institutions, including higher education, will note.’
Sir Anthony Seldon, Vice Chancellor, Buckingham University.
‘Community forest gardens, backed by knowledge of how to store and get the most nutrition from their produce, offer a significant contribution to the fight against obesity and the pressure on food banks and I wish this enterprising project all the success it deserves.’
Peter Kindersley, Founder of the Sheepdrove Trust.
