Product Description

Some forty-five years ago the late Robert Hart had a vision of planting a small food-producing forest, which could fulfil the needs of a healthy diet and at the same time create a beautiful and ecologically sound environment. He based his ideas on tropical forest gardens, which combine maximum output with minimum labour. Having explored Robert s practical and philosophical ideas, this film goes on to look at two other projects inspired by the principles of forest gardening and perennial vegetable growing. On a windy plot in Cornwall, Ken Fern has set up Plants for a Future. He grows 1,500 species of useful perennial plants (with a further 5,500 on a database). Ken s idea is to create a garden that caters for all our needs, and, above all, a garden that can be enjoyed. And a few miles north of London, Mike and Julia Guerra have created a tiny garden as an inspiration to anyone wishing to act locally . For as little as two hours a week, they can grow produce for six months of the year. This has been achieved by successfully combining the techniques of permaculture design, forest gardening and conventional organic growing.

Synopsis

This classic DVD contains archive footage of Robert Hart, the founder of Forest Gardening, who some forty-five years ago had a vision of planting a small food-producing forest, which could fulfill the needs of a healthy diet and at the same time create a beautiful and ecologically sound environment. He based his ideas on tropical forest gardens, which combine maximum output with minimum labour. Having explored Robert's practical and philosophical ideas, this film goes on to look at two other projects inspired by the principles of forest gardening and perennial vegetable-growing.On a windy plot in Cornwall, Kern Fern set up Plants for a Future, growing 1,500 species of useful perennial plants, with a further 5,500 on a database. Ken's idea is to create a garden which caters for all our needs, and above all, a garden which can be enjoyed. And a few miles north of London, Mike and Julia Guerra have created a tiny garden as an inspiration to anyone wishing to 'act locally'. For as little as two hours a week, they can grow produce for six months of the year.

This has been achieved by successfully combining the techniques of permaculture design, forest gardening and conventional organic growing. Anyone looking for small, practical solutions to world problems will find this DVD both useful and inspiring.

Forest Gardening in England 12 Nov 2013
By Jerrilyn Prestiano - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Inspiring use of forest gardening & some permaculture principles as applied in 3 sites in England, presented by its pioneer, Robert Hart, 1913-2000. A short background to the subject at 45 min., with no clues on adapting to other eco-systems-- see book Gaia's Garden for that.
Not a Region 1 (United States) DVD 21 Dec 2014
By mountainlife - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is a PAL format DVD which means it will NOT play in a United States Regional 1 DVD player. You need a special DVD player that will play in all regions.
