Tim Smit introduces Forest Gardening and we meet Martin Crawford and take a tour of his unique Forest Garden, full of unusual foods, fibres and medicinal plants and demonstrating a low intervention, natural way of growing. Centred around a key interview with Martin the film uses drone shots for never seen before vantage points of his Forest Garden and of its true resourcefulness and beauty.
What once stood as a flat field in 1994, is today a multi layered, ecosystem of trees, shrubs and ground covers, producing fruits, nuts, and medicinal products. Forest Gardening is a designed agronomic system based on trees, shrubs and perennial plants mimicking the structure of a natural forest.
