Forest Garden Designer - Available to Hire

A Garden that is not only beautiful, but edible, and ecological too.
Symbiosis in action - the Day Lilly, a delicious edible flower, provides nectar for a visiting hoverfly, which in turn predate insect pests. It's just one example of the astonishing mutually beneficial relationships that make a forest garden flourish.
Over the past seven years I've been studying, researching, designing, and creating edible forest gardens. I've helped out in many permaculture projects, learning from experienced masters in sustainable horticulture, and in the past two years I've been employed to design forest gardens professionally. Now I'm looking for exciting new opportunities in the field.

Forest Gardens are self sustaining ecosystems of mainly perennial plants, which should provide the gardener with a beautiful space and an abundance of food, and potentially materials and herbal medicine too, whilst also serving as a wildlife sanctuary, and a ecological recovery zone, where carbon can be sequestered and soil can be revitalised.

If you have a space where you'd like to create a forest garden, or if you already have a project you just need some advice with, I'd be delighted to help you. If the project inspires me, I'm willing to travel right across Europe to work.

 I can provide excellent references and examples of my existing work...

Even after one year the forest garden can be looking this beautiful and abundant! Here in October, the garden is alight with a multitude of edible flowering plants, which were planted the preceding spring. Raspberries, blueberries, currants, beans, salads and globe artichokes are being harvested too, just a few months after planting.

The only thing that stood here before were the fruit trees.

In the years to follow, the array of edible perennials will proliferate, providing a very rich and varied menu for the gardener to enjoy every day.

Forest Gardening is my passion and it's what I love doing, getting paid just feels like a bonus - I will even consider working for inspiring charitable causes free of charge. So please don't hesitate to get in touch regardless of your budget, I will do my best to help.

Thankyou for reading and I look forward to hearing from you,


A Forest Garden can also provide a wonderful, quiet place to take rest.
