Description Parkwood Forest Garden is a beautiful calm space and a productive permaculture project. It is a young forest garden developed by Sheffield City Council in association with local volunteers. A forest garden is a productive managed woodland that is beneficial to both people, in terms of produce, and wildlife, by way of habitat provision. A wealth of edible and medicinal produce can be organically grown: fruit, nuts, vegetables, herbs, spices and much more. Parkwood forest garden has been designed to need only a small amount of external input. It requires weeding, mulching & pruning, the compost pile needs managing and spreading and, best of all, there is often a lot of harvesting to be done. Other than digging up weeds, it involves a no-dig approach to gardening. We meet in the car park on Cooks Wood Road at 10.45am and walk over to the garden for 11.00am. We have a break at 1.00pm, you can bring your own drink and snack or food to share. We usually make a hot drink too. We finish at around 2.00pm. All tools and appropriate training are provided. Wear sturdy shoes, warm clothes in winter, and come and join us.
