Food Forest Haven - Production and Romantic


In 2018, we transformed 2 acres of arable land (sea clay) into a romantic food forest with more than 85 different species of food forest plants. A double wind hedge on the west side should dampen the polder wind. The field had been sown 2 years earlier with a mix of alfalfa, clover and grass. The romantic food forest was planted in 2 years. We plan to plant the herb and climbing layer in 2025. In 2022 we planted another 2 acres, but now as a production food forest. The design consists of 6 sections with various vegetation layers. Again, alfalfa, clover and grass as the base crop. On the northwest and southwest side, a 3 rows thick wind hedge was planted in January 2022 and the first food forest plants were planted in rows, such as olive willow-apple-nashi-mulberry-berry-walnut-hazel. In 2023, we planted the remaining food forest plants and trimmed the wind hedge here and there.
