FOREST GARDEN COURSE
After conversations with Rakesh (Forest Gardening - Permaculture teacher), we have come up with a proposal for a 1 year long forest gardening course. (17 classes in total)
The course would take place at Niall's back garden, a really beautiful space that we visited a few weeks ago. That's a 5 minutes walk from the triangle on Central Hill.
The course outline is as follows:
Introduction (2 days) - 21st & 22nd April (Saturday & Sunday)
Design Stage: (2 days) - 20th & 27th of May (Sundays)
Implementation Stage: (1 Class a month on a Sunday)
June, July & August: Preparing the ground and path ways - some planting possible
September, October & November - Planting
December, January, February - Not much to do in the garden but we would cover many other things during these 3 months. Also he said it would be good to assess our progress and think of what could have been done better etc.
March, April, May & June - New planting season
The course will be limited to 20 people.
The cost will be £200 each day to be divided between the whole group.
This is a great opportunity for all of us who would like to learn about forest gardening at a cheap rate. Most courses such as this would charge each participant between £100 to £150 for 2 classes.
Please let me know as soon as possible if you are interested in taking part in this project. I would like to highlight that this is a group project and that it would be great to have support from everyone involved in order to run the course the best way we can.
