Most of the food we eat comes from annual production. This means that every year a seed has to be sown, the soil is disturbed and the plant dies.
Food forests turn the actual way of food production upside down. You plant a food tree or shrub just once and you can harvest it for several decades. The soil does not need to be disturbed, so soil life can go on its course without disturbance.
Food forests can be implemented in a very wide range of environments. A food forest (edge) can be created in a garden, there are also therapeutic food forests. They are very popular in company gardens and in playgrounds.
Food forests can also play an important role in agriculture. It is challenging but possible to develop a thriving agricultural business with food forest production at its core.
Food forest Bed&Breakfast
Food forests are the holy trinity: agriculture, nature and experience come together. It is the melting pot of these different elements that makes this type of agriculture so valuable.
Our desire to help the world is very much in our genes, so we are looking for a sustainable way to continue to do so. People, planet, profit can be applied to food forests. The permaculture ethics state this as: people care, earth care and fair share.
Developing a sustainable business model to create, maintain and run a successful food forest is perfectly possible. The game is about finding the right balance between the capacities of the team, assessment of the target audience, efficiency and ecology.
