Creating a Forest Food garden

Module code: X5701E
Level 5
15 credits in spring semester
Teaching method: Seminar
Assessment modes: Coursework

‘Creating a Forest Food Garden’ follows on from the ‘Understanding Forest Gardens’ elective. You will collaborate to develop previous ideas into practical and costed designs for both a forest food garden and a hemp bale building (in 2020 - 21) to serve it and two other related projects. As it will take at least five years from inception to early harvesting of the forest food garden, you will participate in a segment of that time, passing on your achievements and challenges for the next year’s cohort to develop. The building, which will be quicker to establish, will serve future modules.
