This half-day workshop runs from 12:00 to 16:00 in Stanmer Park and Hollingdean, Brighton.
This workshop is primarily aimed at decision-makers considering options for public spaces but is relevant for anyone interested in considering options for such areas. It will visit mature and young orchards, a forest garden and other edible landscape features. It will focus on enabling participants to decide what is appropriate for public spaces. We will consider what is involved in implementing, establishing and maintaining various options.
Our Forest Gardening course is more suited to people wanting to learn how to make and maintain a garden.
