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

Kombucha good for the gut

KombuchaAccording to the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, Kombucha has effective anti-microbial properties against a number of harmful micro-organisms including salmonella, staphylococcus, H. pylori, E. coli etc. Kombucha tea has a nice refreshing taste similar to apple cider and has been  praised for supporting natural balance and vitality of the body for centuries.

Lactic acid, another key element found in Kombucha, acts as a probiotic, helping to maintain healthy microflora that is essential for a strong immune system. It is recommended after the use of antibiotics.

It is believed to help fight off harmful bacteria and pathogens by regulating the level of acidity in the digestive tract. Kombucha tea also contains live enzymes and is rich in antioxidants. Over the centuries Kombucha has been used as a folk remedy to increase vitality, improve digestion, relieve constipation, detoxify the liver, lose weight, reverse the aging process, thin the blood, control appetite, prevent and treat cancer, arthritis, asthma, acne, high blood pressure, bronchitis, candida, high cholesterol, chronic fatigue, depression, colds and flu, diarrhea, gout, kidney problems (including stones), psoriasis, rheumatism, menopause, hair loss, graying, and so much more!
