Name of food forest

Orchard the Eleventh Commandment


On 1 December 2020, 1.8 ha of organic vegetable field was bought at the Barneveldsestraat 11 B in Scherpenzeel (Gelderland). Around the entire plot there is already for 11 years an earthen tree wall with a fence to keep out rabbits and other rodents. In 2022, we are going to grow organic vegetables on the southern part and create a semi-circular toad pool on the northern part. The toad pool will also be used as a water storage facility by digging ditches to drain off excess rainwater into the pool. With the excavated soil from the toad pool, we will make a mound under which we will build a cellar, to keep the harvest cool for a day.
