Pt.2 Plan a Backyard Forest

Chalk circles on bark mulch

The culmination of much planning: glorious chalk circles

Part 2 of my online course preview has been livestreamed and is now available on my YouTube channel

Every week on a Wednesday at 10am, I am a livestreaming a free preview of my online forest garden course, as part of my regular Lockdown Livestream. It ain’t TikTok (yet) but there is lots of useful info.

All videos recorded on my YouTube Create a Backyard Forest playlist

Subscribe to my YouTube channel to help me get a sensible channel name, rather than the unmemorable “UCKXKUlYUniJwEy1Lkvs78qw”. Honestly, don’t these people know how to do social media?
