Forest Gardens are abundant, beautiful, and climate resistant. They are also the new and sustainable way to eat from your garden or allotment. You don't dig, add anything unnatural, and do the minimum weeding or watering. Your produce is mainly perennial - so no need to seed every year either. It's ancient knowledge revived. The National Forest Gardening Scheme aims to bring, individually and collectively, harmony and well being through planting, eating and enjoying Forest Gardens.

They are launching a Forest Garden in a Box: for gardeners, window boxes, schools, community gardens and public parks!
