Establishing a berry-based foodforest fukuoka-style on/in a 30 are claypit

Posted by Raf Verstappen 2 months ago

Hello everyone,

Got a while ago in contact with permaculture and luckly, we can change the world to the better with it. First and foremost, thanks for all the uploads and information regarding permaculture for all those, who uploaded or teaching it. And thank you very much, Bill Mollison for giving us such a nice way of thinking. Have your peace where-ever you may be!

Like the title says, after quite a while of putting in effort and understanding for my case, I finally received my minimum plot of 30 are in a claypit. It was a meadow and for a die-hard permaculturist is common grass a non wanted weed so it will all beĀ  gone before summer.

Due to low maintenance and not pickety about soil, I have chosen prunus as my major common fruit, with two pyrus, a malus and a cydonia. Most of my plumes are old varieties and other old fruits, which I have planted are morus nigra and mespillus germanica.

1% is non edible,only medical : all the others are edible and 2/3 have medical uses too.

Putting in 90 till 100 hours on a weekly base for the next 4 months to get all started and planted.

Real fun to work outside, no matter the weather.

Heartfull greetings from Limburg
