Slow connection? Watch in lower quality
Here Lisa Aitken and Charles Hooper describe how they have created a Forest Garden - an open woodland ecosystem using a range of trees, shrubs and plants for harvest. They share their joint passion for horticulture, self-sufficiency and their desire to work with the land to leave a lasting legacy. They talk us through the design process which includes seven layers of growth with the aim of cultivating the space available to increase biodiversity. Lisa and Charles point out the importance of understanding the condition of the soil, of growing plants for sun or shade in relevant areas, as well as the bonus of having accessible water on site - all with the reassurance that gardening knowledge will increase over time, just as the forest garden will grow and thrive, providing fruit, vegetables, nuts and more for years to come. http://www.forestgarden.info/ An Adliberate film http://www.adliberate.co.uk for WoodlandsTV http://www.woodlands.co.uk/tv
