Are you interested in ecological gardening or self-sufficiency? Would you like to learn more about forest gardens, useful plants, perennial vegetables, nut crops or other food producing woody plants?

On the Forest Gardening course at Salmenrannan tila, Laitila you’ll learn with expert and author Joel Rosenberg – and meet like-minded people!

The course begins with a lecture & discussion about the forest gardens’ structure, principles and plant species. The session covers forest gardening examples from Finland and abroad. 

After the lecture we’ll tour the site and it’s 13 years old forest garden and nut growing trials. You’ll gain a lot of information and useful tips for growing tree crops, shrub crops, perennials and ground covers – and hear about the successes and mistakes. Practical design exercises help you to start designing your own forest garden after the course.
