Juha Ujula

Horticulturist, forest gardener and teacher.
Based in Turku area

I have worked in arboreta, botanical gardens and several nurseries since the last two decades. A lot of my work has been involved in finding and growing new useful plants for our northern climate.

I studied permaculture in the UK and with Aranya & Klaudia van Gool in 2010 and also volunteered in different Permaculture projects in the UK.
I also did the 1 year long Permaculture course at Kinsale College, Co.Cork, Ireland in 2011.
I have been involved in organising two PDC courses in Turku Area (2011 and 2017).

Currently I am teaching Forest Gardening at Livia, Tuorla - College for Land based Studies.

I also teach weekend courses on Forest Gardening and co-teach PDC and Permaculture Intro courses together with two fellow teachers.

I also work in the Nut growing for the North- project, which we started together with Mustila Arboretum and Vakka-Taimi nursery.

Growing plants for permaculture- and Forest Gardens is one of my biggest interests and hopefully that will turn into a bigger business in the near future.
