Story by Sheffield City Council Community Forestry Team Photography by Paul Antcliffe

Parkwood Forest Garden is a permaculture project, developed by Sheffield City Council in association with local volunteers.

It is a managed woodland beneficial in terms of produce and habitat provision for wildlife. A wealth of edible and medicinal produce can be organically grown.

Simulating a woodland edge ecosystem, it is a three dimensional mosaic of a wide variety of plants.

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 there is often a lot of harvesting to be done. Other than digging up weeds, the project involves a no-dig approach to gardening.

Parkwood Forest Garden is maintained by keen volunteers supported by SCC’s Community Forestry team.

We meet between 11am and 2pm on the second Saturday of every month.
