Urban Permaculture Food Forest
This food forest installation began in 2014 and has grown into a self-sustaining edible landscape. Part of this project includes annual vegetable beds for salad greens and garlic.
This garden is now at the point where it is sustaining itself and plants are multiplying on their own. The only water that this garden uses now is rain that falls on it or the roof of the house. There is almost no weeding required at this point and the only area that is being weeded is where the lawn meets the garden but by next year (year 4) there should be no weeding required at all.
This garden is using all the permaculture principles in its design and that is why there is so little human input required for so much plant life to coexist. The most time consuming part of caring for this garden is harvesting fruits and vegatables throughout the growing season.
Edible plants on this property:
Food forest design and insatallation with annual vegetable and garlic production.
Lawn to Garden Transformation
This lawn in st. Catharines was converted into a food producing garden. This property has fruit trees and bushes bordering the north side with garden beds ready for vegetable production. All the grass has been removed and replaced with mulch to catch water and build the soil.
