NO WASTE

 

Each of the different layers depicted above is not only producing food for our consumption, but food and habitat for wildlife. The reason that no chemical pesticides or fertilisers are required in a food forest, is that each layer holds habitat for a predator that feeds on the insect pests. Therefore, in this way they are self-regulating ecosystems. Further more, as the wildlife within the forest defecate they spread more seeds naturally expanding the harvest, and habit for more wildlife. As the trees shed their leaves, fruits and nuts, they feed the soil beneath them, adding nutrients to the ground creating fertile earth for future growing, bolstering the effect of the wildlife.

We rely entirely on the generosity of our donors.  Whatever you can afford will go towards an integral project within a local community, and help us build a safe space in which people can come and learn about the merits of sustainable agricultural practice.

First Chair of the Charity Commission

“It is good to learn of a local initiative by young people willing to tackle head on current issues relating from Environmental Change to Mental Health.
Their initiative to mobilise people to progress tree planting, food production and develop respect for our wonderful fertile open spaces is to be applauded.
This is a grass roots initiative (no pun intended) that I fully commend and would encourage others to support.
During my time as Chair of the Charity Commission it was unusual to see such a positive, simple initiative. They deserve to be successful. I endorse their initiative and recommend others to embrace their good works.”
