Project information

Name of food forest

Ecofarm the Foundation

Description

Since 2018, together with volunteers, we have been creating a biodiverse place from a barren agricultural field where we set up a sustainable living and working community. In our yard you will find a food forest including fruit and nut trees, a flower meadow, a frog pool, a small greenhouse, fruit garden, (medicinal herb) garden and a recycled vegetable garden. There are chickens running around and our stately black cat named Nora. We want to manage our farm in the form of a circular, balanced and sustainable system based on permaculture. We farm and harvest on a small scale and mainly by hand. We use our own compost and no fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides. Water comes from the ground and energy from the sun and wind. We reuse all our raw materials as much as possible and strive to be self-sufficient. We think it is important to give space to inspire others and to preserve traditions, knowledge and skills that make us feel connected to nature. We therefore enjoy facilitating educational events. You can volunteer with us. Our harvest and processed products are available in our yard and we like to give tours.
