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.
It is for hobby gardeners, smallholders, community gardeners and landscape professionals.
Forest Gardening In Practice features:
- A history of forest gardening
- 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 USA.
- Chapters on integrating animals, learning, enterprises, working in community and public settings.
“Tomas Remiarz provides the reader with a survey of a maturing movement for cold-climate food forestry. His work shows the depth and breadth of this international movement, and allows us to learn from the experience of practitioners around the world.” – Eric Toensmeier
