What does our own personal garden of eden look like? Can we grow the diversity of medicinal herbs we need for our practices in the microspace of a backyard, or a large farm? How can we integrate the trees and shrub medicine we want to grow locally with the other herbs in our gardens? We hope to answer these questions with a technique called forest gardening. In designing a forest garden we can think of the plants occurring in layers as they do in the forest. As gardener herbalists we find ourselves wanting to grow herbs and mushrooms that may fit into all the layers of the forest. Forest gardening gives us tools for the ecological cultivation of a diversity of ‘wild quality’ herbs with the benefit of increased disease and pest resistance, soil creation, improved habitat for many species and reduced water and fertility needs over time.

Stay after to help install a medicinal orchard if you'd like!

Taught by John Wright of Red Beet Row.
