Tokachi Millennium Forest Hokkaido
Michael Wacher’s talk on 26th February on this topic was quite inspiring. You might be interested in learning more about the place and the brief for its design…. Dan Pearson was the designer and maintains a watching brief. If you have the technology try Googling Dan Pearson and Millennium Forest you can find some amazing videos and interesting articles. If you Google ART OF GARDEN: Dan Pearson you will find on You Tube a lecture Dan did in 2015 explaining the design concepts etc. Worth a look!
