About Jake

My name is Jake Rayson and I’m a forest gardener and designer. Like most people, I’m concerned about the ecological and climate emergency. Promoting forest gardening is my small contribution to making things better, for connecting people with their landscape and their wildlife. I give talks, design gardens and run an online course.
