Course - Permaculture and how to plant a forest garden.

Gortbrack organic farm (Ballyseedy, Tralee, Co. Kerry) is hosting a weekend course on “An introduction to permaculture and how to plant a forest garden” with Graham Strouts (Kinsale permaculture course tutor) on sat 8th & sun 9th august.

This course teaches participants the basic practical skills needed to design and build a forest garden, based on permaculture principles, introduce you to some of the surprising plants you can grow to eat, and give practical experience of mulch and no-dig, no-weed gardening methods.

A Forest Garden combines fruit and nut trees, fruit bushes, herbs and perennial vegetables to create a beautiful and productive self-maintaining garden and a habitat for wildlife. It would also suit spaces in school grounds, community green spaces, allotments, public spaces.

The course will be run by Graham Strouts one of the leading permaculture teachers in the country. Graham Strouts has been developing a forest garden in west Cork for the past 8 years. He teaches Permaculture in Kinsale College.
