Permaculture Magazine
Friday, 15th January 2021

Learn about zoning in a permaculture garden or food forest.

Maddy and Tim Harland from Permaculture Magazine show you around their wild forest garden, established in 1991. Learn how with good zoning you can establish a thriving, productive, edible landscape full of useful, medicinal and edible trees and plants, and create a wildlife habitat that is teaming with biodiversity at the same time.

Take a look at the veggie beds and multi-stacked greenhouse, explore the diverse flower meadows that bring in pollinators for the forest garden, immerse yourself in the choice of fruit and nut trees and see the bees in the apiary.

All of these zones are combined to grow an extensive variety of healthy trees and plants in a space that looks far bigger than it really is!
