Edible forest garden with Kazakh apple trees

Posted by Pascal Depienne over 8 years ago

Our goal is to recreate the biotope of these apple trees in order to preserve this genetic heritage for the future générations.

Help us on WETHETREES, a permaculture crowdfunding website!

http://www.wethetrees.com/projects/46-apples-and-people-des-pommes-et-des-hommes

 


Inspired by their orginal habitat, we will install an ecosystem close to the ones their parents have in the mountains of Kazakhstan. Some of the original companion plants will be replaced by close relatives aclimated to our region while occupying the same layer, but more appropriate to food production : black berries will be replaced by thornless blackberries, hops by hardy kiwis,… We will therefore end up with a multi layered orchard providing us with a high yield potential.

80 of these apple trees are presently growing in our little nursery, they have been started from seeds this last April 2012, the seeds were provided to us by the Cornwell institute (USA) coming from different parents of Kazakh apple trees.

 

‘APPLES AND PEOPLE’ is company open to collaboration with similar incentive (heritage orchad, natural protected areas, aquatic areas,…)

For this first project we each invested with our personal savings, in order to buy this 1,2ha property in the Poitou region, France. Now, we would like to be able to allow this project to strive toward a perenial development. This is why we are going toward a crowd funding co-operation.

With your help, we will be investing in tools, mulching materials, companion plants, tree protections and start planning a future project…

 

A permaculture design of the project is in the process and we forsee the eventuality of hosting courses and visits and thefore we have the intention of building a small structure to keep people off the rain, keep tools,…, this structure could also allow us to have some water catchment opportunity and irrigate requiring plants the first years.
 Help us go beyond our expected goal to allow us help set up similar projects, buy land and create abundance for all.
