Preparation for the Regenerative Landscape Design Course

I spent the last few days with Smilyan Pavlov from Huma selecting design plots for our Regenerative Landscape Design Course scheduled for the late summer of this year.

I'm very much looking forward to this course and believe we have come up with an excellent format. The focus is on delivering a very practical and realistic experience to the participants wherein we'll be out in the field using real plots of land to show how to survey the topography, botany, soil and habitat of a site. Using the information we gather from our surveys, we'll go through how to analyse the data in order to be able to make informed decisions that result in a design that is truly regenerative, productive and economically and ecologically viable.

The plots we are looking to survey during the course were acquired as part of our land stewardship strategy and we intend to plant a range of experimental perennial polycultutres on these nest year when we expand the polyculture project.

Smilyan and Georgi will be working with us on the surveying and mapping segments of the course and introducing some low cost mapping tools and techniques . Click here and here to see some of their past work.

If you would like to create a forest garden and gain some practical hands on experience join us this Summer. We'll be covering site surveying, landscape design software, installing access, beds, irrigation channels, planting tree, shrub, herb and ground layers and making a small wildlife pond. All in 3 days! And plenty of follow up material to take away with you to digest slowly.

We offer a diversity of plants and seeds for permaculture and forest gardens  including a range of fruit and nut cultivars. We Deliver all over Europe from Nov - March. Give a happy plant a happy home :)
