Grow a sustainable food forest

FoodForestPoster_V2

Saturday 18 February 10am to 4pm

The idea of forest gardens (food forests) was first articulated by Robert A. de J. Hart in his book “Forest Gardening” and subsequently became one of the key concepts in permaculture. A permaculture forest garden mimics the architecture and beneficial relationships of a natural plant/animal community that occurs in that climate. Food forests are not “natural”, but are designed and managed ecosystems that are very rich in biodiversity and productivity.

At our demonstration site, the food forests are designed to meet several goals that are universal, and that are specific to us:

to produce food for ourselves
to produce indigenous forage and serve as habitat for beneficial insects, pollinators, chickens, goats and birds
to create a wildlife habitat
to provide nourishment for our bodies through herbal teas and concoctions
to create beauty and sense of well being
to create shade and increase ambient humidity in hot dry climate of Johannesburg

to manage climate change via water wise gardening
to create a self sustaining food forest with its own microclimate

Learn how to do Hugelkultur

Hugelkultur are no-dig raised beds with a difference. They hold moisture, build fertility, maximise surface volume and are great spaces for growing fruit, vegetables and herbs. Instead of putting branches, leaves and grass clippings in bags by the curbside for the bin men… build a hugel bed. Simply mound logs, branches, leaves, grass clippings, straw, cardboard, petroleum-free newspaper, manure, compost or whatever other biomass you have available, top with soil and plant your veggies and fruit trees
Cost R500
Included in the cost is a fruiting fruit tree, a light organic lunch and notes.
