Park in the Swale
Create a Food Forest Designed w/ Permaculture Principles
Transplant a dozen fruit trees to designated spots along a run-off slope in order to exploit gravity feed irrigation and seasonal rainfall. Each fruit-bearing tree will be the primary shade source for culinary/medicinal shrub(s) which in turn, shade and compliment herbs and edible flowers. We will use the rainwater harvesting principles described in Brad Lancaster’s texts: Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands Vol.1 & 2. We rely on the permacultural concepts described in David Holmgren’s Permaculture: Principles and Pathways Beyond Sustainability and Rosemary Morrow’s Earth User’s Guide to Permaculture.
