Edible forest gardening is the ultimate in producing, food whilst keeping in harmony with nature. Anyone with a small patch of land can grow an Edible Forest Garden. They’ve been created in small suburban backyards and large parks, on suburban blocks, and in small plots on rural farms. Duncan will share his experience with designing and implementing Edible Forest Gardens across Melbourne. Find out why this low maintenance and productive form of gardening is the key to feeding our suburbs in the future. Learn how to design an Edible Forest Garden and avoid some of the common pitfalls Duncan has observed. Come away from this session inspired to turn your backyard into an Edible Forest Garden.

Duncan Cocking operates Leaf, Root & Fruit Gardening Services. He is passionate about reducing the human impact on the environment and actively promotes a sustainable approach to living and sourcing of food.
