"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 was great for me to go with a friend too - thanks Ceri! And thanks for writing this - it's reminding me that I'd like to go to more in the future. I really enjoyed the session and would never have gone if you hadn't suggested it :)

Thanks for sharing this Ceri, the idea of focusing on a 'human being' rather than a 'human doing' is a great suggestion
