Little forests created using the Miyawaki method feature carefully-selected native trees and plants in multiple layers, growing faster and more densely than in traditional forest replanting. Once established the forest becomes self-sustaining. Master Gardener Joyce Hostyn shows how her own front yard little forest is an ever-changing conversation with the land, in which her initial design was modified by squirrels and birds. Maureen Buchanan, a member of Kingston Indigenous Languages Nest, talks about weaving the Indigenous wordview into the Miyawaki concept.
