Forest Gardening: Ecological Vision & Practical Application

Forest Gardening:

An Ecological Vision & Practical Application to a Regenerative Future

The Vision 
A Million Forest Gardens in Carolinian Canada by 2017

The Carolinian Canada Forest Garden Campaign 

One Thousand Gardens ~ 2012
Million Gardens ~ 2017

Shifting Paradigms
A new paradigm for human participation in the ecology of cultural and natural landscapes. 

“Obviously, few of us are in a position to restore the forests. But tens of millions of us have gardens, or access to open spaces such as industrial wastelands, where trees can be planted. and if full advantage can be taken of the potentialities that are available even in heavily built up areas, new ‘city forests’ can arise...”
~Robert A de J Hart, was the pioneer of forest gardening in the UK. 

Forest gardening is a high-yielding, low-maintenance, and the most regenerative form of gardening existing to humanity. Integrating knowledge from the fields of permaculture, agriculture, ecology, biology and other natural living sciences into a wholistic set of evolving tools and practices, forest gardening is one of humanity’s greatest prospects for establishing a flourishing future.

Forest gardening is about returning to a place of honouring our relationship and connection to Nature, of sacred partnership with the living planet we comprise, and through these relationships reinventing and building whole connected thriving eco systems that sustain and regenerate all life.

We are offering numerous pathways to be Educated, Inspired and hopefully Activated in creating ecological forest garden sanctuaries of sustainability.

Forest an idea whose time has come.
