urban wild life food forest
I serve nature and urban biodiversity. I work alone most of the time as efforts to raise interest in my neighbourhood have not succeeded. Instead I document everything and share it on my website https://www.greenidiom.com. I'm experimenting with ways of growing food that also support biological diversity. I grow as many native food plants as possible, as indigenous plants have eco-evolved with a great diversity of local insects and micro-fauna. I've recently started collaborating with a group creating wild life corridors in the city. I'm always working on propagating wild plants that are delicious to eat. I do not believe foraging is sustainable, and this is one reason native food plants should be cultivated. I also practice 3 zone permaculture, keeping the majority of the garden wild as a food forest and collecting the organic inputs from the rest of the garden in grow beds fed underground with grey water. A balance of low input indigenous food plants and high input exotic vegetables. I have created a number of systems for recycling waste streams on the property to serve the needs of growing food.
