Gardening with Trees

and other Perennials


Saturday - 11.03.2023

10 am to 4 pm

Laudato Si Centre, Worsley, M28 2ND


Explore how to apply the ecological patterns found in forests to design permanent edible and medicinal cultivated habitats. These patterns of cultivation can be applied to any scale, from a patio or balcony garden to any acreage; although the focus of this day course will be on urban settings, ranging from private to community garden spaces. Perennials, such as trees, are the structural engineers of the eco-garden, providing habitat and supporting biodiversity. Learn how to integrate trees with other perennials for long-term abundance, beauty, and carbon capture.

Hands-on activities:

  • preparing an area in the garden to plant and edible hedge.
  • planning planting schemes using a mix of perennials (and a few annuals) to plant the edible hedge's under layers with the aim of supporting the long term health of the trees and fruit bushes.

The day course fee is £60. Book your place. Registrations closed.
