Establishing a Permaculture based Food Forest

Permaculture is a design system that is based on understanding ecosystems, it takes a look at the interactions between the trees, plants, fungi, bacteria, birds, animals and all other natural elements to create a sustainable ecosystem.

In the first video we go through a slideshow with Josh Robinson a permaculturist gives us a detailed insight into Permaculture, the functioning and how it works as a sustainable solution in creating a food forest.
He talks about the flaws in the tradition orchard system, where the same trees are planted together, thus making the soil deficient of the same nutrients, the need for fertilization and also susceptible to diseases.

The alternative to this method is a permaculture food forest, a perennial polyculture of multi-purposed plants. This design not only produce lots of food, but provide other services such as pest control, auto fertilization, mulch, pollination and much more.

Food forests are designed to be highly productive with the least amount of labor, this video will explain how to create a sustainable orchard that is patterned after nature.

What can you expect when you have a Food Forest based on permaculture? Take a look at the video below, that takes you through a 30 year old Food forest based on permaculture, with a huge variety of fruits.
