Permablitz: Planting a native forest garden

Come and join us for the third permablitz to implement a project funded by ‘Grow Wild’ (Royal Botanic Gardens Kew) to create an area of forest garden to showcase edible, wildlife-friendly plants that have been growing in Britain since ancient times. We will be preparing the soil and doing a lot of planting, some from seed. We’ll also be setting up a shelter area with trellis for native climbers. 

Mini-workshops will cover ‘what are native plants?’, an explanation of Forest Farm Peace Garden’s forest garden design and this new area being established and ’the best way to establish new plants through their first year'. 

A lunch of soup, bread and snacks will be provided. You are welcome to bring snacks to share.
