A FOOD FOREST, ANYONE?
“I want to improve the ‘food forest’ section where the fruit trees are located by planting more nitrogen fixing plants, a variety of other types of plants and improving its soil.
“The other thing I have in mind (which is more immediate) is to create a small designer garden space for recreation and a little utility. I’m doing this because I have someone who is interested to donate a large number of plants to the garden. I have looked at the various plants that is to be donated and have designed the space with those plants in mind. The design concepts of the space is based on 1.The Fibonacci Sequence, 2.Privacy/Safe Haven, 3.Healing and Herbs, and 4.Energy Flow. I design with function first and form second. I also use Permaculture principles in my designs.” – Lymun Loo.
