This module examines a range of methods for 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—as well as the crops associated with them, and how these practices have evolved. In collaboration with the University of Exeter’s Community Garden you will have ample opportunity to practice these techniques, along with methods such as raised beds and bee keeping. You will also visit exemplary growing sites and community gardens in the South West that have developed or used these approaches.
