Some 45 years ago, the late Robert Hart had a vision of planting a small food-producing forest that could fulfill the needs of a healthy diet and at the same time create a beautiful and ecologically sound environment. Having explored Hartâ€™s practical and philosophical ideas, this film goes on to look at two other projects inspired by the principles of forest gardening and perennial vegetable growing.
On a windy plot in Cornwall, Ken Fern has set up Plants for a Future, where he grows 1,500 species of useful perennial plants (and maintains information on a further 5,500 in his database). And a few miles north of London, Mike and Julia Guerra have created a tiny garden as an inspiration to anyone wanting to â€œact locally.â€
Anyone looking for small, practical solutions to world problems will find this DVD both useful and inspiring.
