A brief outline of what the event will include:

A guided tour of the Community Food Forest which was built to provide food for people and as a site for wildlife and biodiversity. The site is in its infancy but already we have bat boxes in the trees, frogs in the pond and a huge range of usual and unusual edible plants being grown. From perennials such as rhubarb, perennial kale and mulberries to unusual species such as Apios americana and Hablitzia tamnoides. 

The food forest has seven layers of production and it will be possible to see most of them in action. 

Our list of birds, insects and other wildlife is increasing as we improve the area for humans and wildlife to enjoy together.
