Food Forests Could Bring Healthy Organic Food To Everyone – For Free…

8 Times More Productive Than Monoculture.

http://www.ecosnippets.com/gardening/food-forests-organic-food-for-free/?fbclid=IwAR3Rj4DxUNf7z9IbWSwcwFCv3EtwRRFe7u_2N12_9uQhir5FimATk2JOfWQFood forests or Forest gardening have been around for a long time with many of the native cultures practicing this form of sustainable agriculture. It is a form of low-maintenance plant-based food production which replicates natural ecosystems, incorporating fruit and nut trees, shrubs, herbs, running vines and perennial vegetables. Beneficial plants and companion planting is a big part of the food forest system. Unlike much of the modern industrial agricultural system which relies heavily of inputs such

We have (in the ground) 40 apple root stock, (I was too late to graft on the scion wood disease resistant varieties) 11 Bartlett Pear trees, 11 Mulberry Trees, 8 Elderberry Plants, Grapes, Rhubarb, walking onions, chives, 50 Blueberries, 8 Thuja Green Giant and lots of white pine and oak saplings. Also started some Nitrogen fixers: Black and Honey Locust Trees. We are working a shoe string budget, so it will be slow going until we find a funding source.

We plan on using the Ellen White Tree Planting Method. (See below) We have 9 yards of compost, 5 yards of top soil, 5 yards of leaf mulch, 3 yards of horse manure. Enough to have a serious planting this fall. We also have a back hoe to dig the holes. We should have a great planting effort in fall 2021. In the beginning of the video there is a contrast of a tree planted using the Ellen White method and then the same type of trees using the DNR/DEQ method. The extra effort on the front end will produce superior results on the back end.

The Food Forest will regenerate the soil and last for generations to come long after we are gone.
