As part of THE Hungry Spirit Masterplan we will be creating a Food Forrest on site, to show how we can create a productive, edible landscape in a semi-arid environment. We are planning to host a workshop on this later in the year.
They have been applying the principles of the Food Forrest in the middle east for over 2000 years very successfully and it makes sense to me that we can do it here too.
Imagine a cool green space in summer on the opalfields as a retreat from the heat, creating a lovely microclimate and providing abundant food.
Anything is possible!
This is a great little video on Food Forrest Gardening!
