Food forest B02

Our first food forest is located in zone B02 close to the farm buildings. The swales were dug in September 2018.

During the growing period a lot of grasses and brassicas grow vigorously and may overtake more desired plants.

We have put in sheep to help a bit with the vigorous growth of grasses and brassicas but we need to carefully place electric netting to prevent the sheep from nibbling on the trees.

We tried to use non-electric netting but the sheep find a way to go under it and lift it up.

Once we have woodchips available we will cover the berms completely with them and suppress the unwanted plants so that we can start planting more desired (food) species.
