Here at Garden Cottage we have over 25 years of experience in creating a forest garden and in sharing our knowledge and expertise with others. We have worked with, and indeed taught, many of the world’s well-known and well-loved permaculture tutors. People and permaculture is our passion and has been for over twenty five years and we delight in sharing our knowledge and the abundance that is Garden Cottage. We hold regular open days and courses in permaculture, forest gardening, food preservation and pruning. We also run a north hardy plant nursery; The Red shed.
