Learn forest gardening

Here you will learn how to plant a forest garden, ie to grow vegetables, shrubs and trees that basically take care of themselves - all according to nature's own principles. A common misconception is that it is about growing in a forest. The term that comes from the English Forest Garden is sometimes also called hole-about-noise cultivation. It is a way of growing that is inspired by the forest. A cultivation with edible perennials that are completely scalable. You can start small and expand as much as you like. For example, if you have an apple tree in the middle of the lawn and some gooseberry bushes next door, you can connect them by accompanying them with Jerusalem artichokes, aronia, blueberry and rhubarb. This type of cultivation requires less irrigation and labor. In addition, the animals love farming. You can also get a greater variety and the opportunity to harvest for a longer period. Because a forest garden has a high biological diversity, pests are more easily kept away. Unlike a monoculture, not all plants are equally tall, but here you grow in different levels, which uses sunlight as efficiently as possible. It is not necessary to be in nature or in the countryside to be able to plant a forest garden. Since you can have basically any size you want, it is good to install even in urban environments, if you have a small free area.

Naturligt och lite improviserat men ändå strukturerat. Ger ett annat perspektiv på odling när man gör den mer ”huller om buller” istället för strikt ordning.
