Permaculture Food Forests

Want to take your fruit and veg growing to the next level and create a permaculture food forest in your own backyard.
Learn how to start your own forest garden to grow fruit trees in a low input system that produces its own fertility, biomass and perennial vegetables.
A food forest mimics the diversity of a natural forest where a variety of plants grow together as an ecosystem. By modelling this concept in the garden, plants grouped together complement each other, take advantage of niches and microclimates, increase biodiversity and ensure healthy soil and plants.
It looks beautiful! And has huge benefits, producing food with minimal effort.
See different established food forests at Bloomfield’s Homestead in Jimboomba.
