Anna regularly gives workshops about ‘How to Plant a Forage Garden’, ‘Permaculture for Allotments’, ‘How to Grow Organic Food from Seed’ and many other topics- just ask.
The main way to start a permaculture journey is to attend an Introduction Course.
Because designing is so pertinent to permaculture- Anna’s intro course focuses on this- learning the basic skills of permaculture design.

FOREST GARDEN TALK
This forest garden is a 12 meter x 3 meter demonstration site, a similar size to an average back garden.
Anna’s design shows how to play around with a rectangular shape and make it interesting, as well as use different sized trees and planting arrangements to create a productive as well as beautiful garden.
Talk Sunday 29th Sept- time TBC
The Home Forage Garden
Anna believe passionately that every garden could have a small forest garden area or indeed BE a forest garden. She intermingles the word forest and forage because many people are confused about having a ‘forest’ in their garden. Essentially it is about having easy to maintain food plants in your garden that you can forage through out the year. ‘Forest’ really refers to a multi-layered ecosystem that increasing looks after itself and produces more food as time goes by… come and find out more about it at the
