"A Forest Garden is a place where nature and people meet halfway, between the canopy of trees and the soil underfoot. It doesn't have to look like a forest -what's important is that natural processes are allowed to *unfold to the benefit of plants ,people and other creatures. The result is an edible ecosystem". (Tomas Remiarz)
*Unfold; through the practitioners knowledge of design & 'intuitive' application - its all about merging with what we have set before us carefully observing and 'interfering' in a positive way, where we experience, not separation, but oneness with our creation. A garden vision that we set in motion. It's an invitation for nature to unfold in the best possible way,..to serve up cosmic and earthly production.

It sounds like you had a fabulous day with Katie and the Barnwood team seeing old friends and meeting new ones. You always write beautiful reports which share the atmosphere of every event you visit. Hope to see you very soon.

I'm so so happy you had such a wonderful day and I'm looking forward to hopefully taking part in much more, I'm currently learning how to swim which helps my disability but I'm also on the lookout for some locally based groups in and around the Matson GL4 4BA area so i can use my mobility scooter to get to places so reading about your fab day has given me more hope and please keep in touch thank you for listening xxx

Thanks for sharing this Sally. Having a 'community power' event gives such a strong message to others about whats possible when people come together. I'm glad you had fun, despite the rain!
