Food Forest Garden
Food forest is a concept of cultivating the land, where we try to imitate natural ecosystems. Every forest is a big living organism, where each part of it is interconnected to one another. The different layers have their functions and help the other to thrive. Observing that, we allow plants to grow the best they can in harmony with others. Giving them enough shade and mulch, we don’t have to use so much water. Growing the nitrogen-fixing plants among the edible ones, we create a cycle of nutrients, when no additional fertilizing is needed.
It is our playground and a big learning platform. It is also a place, where we like to spend our time the most. There is nothing more relaxing than getting our hands dirty in a well cultivated, fertile soil. We love to watch, how it grows, listen to the bees buzzing all year round. Each season it gets more exciting, the trees get bigger, the perennial plants more and more establish themselves.
