Livestream — Forest Garden Gallery
Wed 18 Nov 10am GMT, indoors at Forest Garden HQ, talking about the Forest Garden Gallery project
Wednesday 18th November, 10am GMT
When I started out with forest gardening, I wish I’d had a decent photograph of an Autumn Olive to hand, as I planted my windbreak hedge far too close to the path!
There are about 435 plants, and the idea is to find 8 different photos of each plant (leaf, fruit, seedling etc). That’s 3,480 photos to find 😲!!! So, I’m looking to build up a network of volunteers for this rather mammoth task 🐘.
I’ll walk through what work is required, both research and editing, then explain the spreadsheets, and then look at how the gallery software functions.
There will be an informal Zoom Q&A afterwards as well. Bring your own biscuits 🍰.

On my second favourite gardening podcast is a fantastic episode with Robert Kourik, from way back when in November 2019 (remember those pre-Covid days?). It’s so good, I’ve listened to it twice. He talks about the hidden world of roots and how they’re overlooked. Tree roots extend further than you think, feeding roots often point upwards, and a “donut mulch” is a more efficient way to distribute nutrients. Fascinating.
It is tricky to get over that “income hump”, so that I can afford to spend more time on new material. Possibly I need to do the thing I swore I’d never do, namely write articles for free in exchange for promotion 🤔
