Forest Garden Skill Share

As part of our regular series of Forest Garden Skill Shares, ELL is proud to be hosting a National Forest Gardening scheme:

We can share:

- an update on our work with the Newhaven community
- fingers crossed, a viewing of the newly minted short film
- emerging thinking about forest gardens as learning spaces (for example reaction to our proposed course at Schumacher)
- all your news
- ...and we will have space to sharpen our focus together on where NFGS can really make a difference.

Forest Garden Skillshare

Once every three months, we host a Forest Garden Skill-share.

You are invited to bring whatever you like: news from a project you've been involved in, a piece of information... anything really... As long as it's linked to forest gardening. We usually kick off the event with a guest speaker and share some food. Please bring food or drink to share.

Apple Tree Grafting Workshop

 

Edible Landscapes has teamed up with The Orchard Project - we will be learning how to graft apple trees using the ancient 'whip and tongue' method with a knife.
Once you've learned this reliable technique you'll be able to create new trees year after year.

Open Saturday

As an experiment, we're opening our gates on a few Saturdays. We have our work cut out moving some of our plants over to Manor House Lodge and bringing trees into the park, along with a variety of other tasks. We'll be working right through the winter, while the plants are dormant, to achieve this. Roll up your sleeves and join in!
