This module examines different methods of growing food on a small-scale. You will study a variety of food practices originating from different parts of the world—foraging, permaculture, forest gardens, home-gardens—and the crops associated with them. In collaboration with the University of Exeter’s Community Garden you will have ample opportunity to practice these techniques, in combination with more traditional methods such as raised beds and bee keeping. You will also visit exemplary growing sites, in the South West, that have developed or used these approaches.
