Plants for a Future (PFAF) provides a free-to-use online database with detailed, codified information on over 8,000 plants, mainly perennials, with edible, medicinal and other uses. The information is progressively enhanced and refined through their own expertise and a network of users worldwide. A sophisticated search facility is provided on their website to enable selection of sets of plants to meet combinations of criteria, including properties and uses, carbon farming applications, and growing conditions. They also have a series of illustrated books..
Join the plants for a future team in this session and find out about what the current focus is at PFAF, including the launch of their Food Forest Fund, which will support the start up of several new forest gardens in the uk. They are also keen to find out how their database, search facilities and publications can be of use to designers of food forests. With over 30 years of practical experience of promoting and cataloging perennial, edible plants to share, this is a session not to be missed.
There will be an opportunity after the presentation to ask questions, to share your project news and to ask for any support you need from other projects in the network.
