У нас на 9 мая обычно идёт дождь. Может это связано как-то с тем, что в Москве разгоняют облака😏. В этом году ещё и град был с крупную горошину. По итогам града новая теплица выдержала и старая тоже. Питомник уже успели накрыть фасадной сеткой. Малыши в питомнике не пострадали - сетка оказывается не только ветер и солнце задерживает, но и град тоже. Зато весь сад пролит, деревья сразу распустили листики, травка заколосилась, пруд сразу поднялся по уровню сантиметров на 5. У нас это первый дождик после того как снег сошёл. Я уже даже полив достала. А тут такая радость. У нас дождь - это повод все посадить, пересадить, вскопать и посеять, только в такие дни приживаемость 100%, поэтому работы много. Писать много не буду, надеюсь вас дождь тоже не обошёл стороной. Как вы думаете, град не повредит цветущему саду? Плоды завяжутся после такого? #пермакультура #леососад #родовыепоместья #питомник #град #плодовыйсад #плодовыедеревья #плодовые #садмечты #садснуля #Hail #gardening #Garden #gardeninglife #forestgarden #permaculture

'Trillium ovatum' is one of our most identifiable woodland perennials spread throughout the western half of North America. The large white 3 petaled blossoms are short lived, fading to pink before falling. Trillium is 1 of 2 common native perennials that relies on the work of ants for seed dispersal. Attached to each seed is a fatty appendage called an eliaosome that provides an easy meal for the passing insects. After carrying off and devouring the nutrient rich offering the seeds are then left behind to germinate in their new location. #gardenplants #hardinesszone7b #shadegarden #springephemerals #ecologygarden #trillium #forestgarden #gardening #speciesgarden #naturegarden #landscaping #pnwgarden #homegarden #gardening #nativegarden

Turtlehead's (Chelone glabra) white flowers really pop out when growing in a forest. As if its beauty wasn't enough, this flower also attracts hummingbirds and butterflies. This is great for moist and partly shaded gardens. Another bonus is that it is relatively pest resistant and unpalatable to deer and other mammals. #ontarionativeplants #attractinghummingbirds #CottageGarden #perennialplants #forestgarden #ByTheBluffs #BytheBluffsLkCharles #RootedByTheBluffs #owensoundfieldnaturalists #BrucePeninsula #GeorgianBayGardens

Last autumn we planted 90 trees at Urban Edge Farm via a grant from Lancaster Tree Tenders... 87 of them survived the winter and now they all look fantastic! In order by the pictures: Paw Paw, Hawthorn, Juneberry, Pecan, Elder, Plum, Persimmon! We have such a high rate of survival and such good looking trees for 2 reasons: 1) regular maintenance, and 2) no tree tubes!!! #urbanedgefarm #susquehannasustainability #urbanagriculture #urbanfarming #permaculture #forestgarden #agroforestry #rewilding #conservation #regenerativeagriculture

🌧️ Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth. They do not preach learning and precepts, they preach, undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life. ☀️ A tree says: A kernel is hidden in me, a spark, a thought, I am life from eternal life. The attempt and the risk that the eternal mother took with me is unique, unique the form and veins of my skin, unique the smallest play of leaves in my branches and the smallest scar on my bark. I was made to form and reveal the eternal in my smallest special detail. 🌱 When we are stricken and cannot bear our lives any longer, then a tree has something to say to us: Be still! Be still! Look at me! Life is not easy, life is not difficult. Those are childish thoughts. Let God speak within you, and your thoughts will grow silent. You are anxious because your path leads away from mother and home. But every step and every day lead you back again to the mother. Home is neither here nor there. Home is within you, or home is nowhere at all. 🌿 A longing to wander tears my heart when I hear trees rustling in the wind at evening. If one listens to them silently for a long time, this longing reveals its kernel, its meaning. It is not so much a matter of escaping from one's suffering, though it may seem to be so. It is a longing for home, for a memory of the mother, for new metaphors for life. It leads home. Every path leads homeward, every step is birth, every step is death, every grave is mother. 🌳 So the tree rustles in the evening, when we stand uneasy before our own childish thoughts: Trees have long thoughts, long-breathing and restful, just as they have longer lives than ours. They are wiser than we are, as long as we do not listen to them. But when we have learned how to listen to trees, then the brevity and the quickness and the childlike hastiness of our thoughts achieve an incomparable joy. Whoever has learned how to listen to trees no longer wants to be a tree. He wants to be nothing except what he is. That is home. That is happiness.

@geofflawtononline A food forest is a layered garden ecosystem that mimics natural forests but is designed with productive, particularly edible, plants. There are seven layers in a food forest: canopy, understory, shrub, herbaceous, groundcover, vertical (vines), and root. The key to building a food forest is starting with mostly support species, like nitrogen-fixing legumes, and nurturing the productive plants into maturity. Once the food-producing trees are grown, the ratio of supporting species will have diminished so that productive plants come to dominate the garden. Aside from food, food forests have innumerable benefits to the home garden—mulch, building material, perennial output, etc—and surrounding environment—biodiversity, fertility, animal habitat, etc. #permaculture #foodforest #forestgarden #permaculturedesign #permacultura #permacultureskills #permaculturedesigncourse #nature #agriculture #organic #growyourown #regenerativeagriculture #buildsoil #sustainableliving #agroforestry #regeneration #ecology #restoration #ecosystem #conservation #agroecology #naturelovers #sustainabledesign #permaculturewillfeedtheworld

Finally, it seems that the wild Swedish blueberry is coming along. It has been sitting there quietly in the ground, looking like little, green, and dormant sticks all spring. Now the leaves are unfolding and these cute little flowers are emerging. Leonardo will now spend his summer checking if they have turned into berries yet! Then we can spend our summer telling him, that he must not eat the berries before they are actually blue. #blueberry #wildblueberry #blueberryflowers #wildblueberries #foodforest #forestgarden #backyardfood #permaculture #homestead #homesteading #homesteadlife #offgridliving #livinginthewoods #smallfarm #natureliving

Loving this shady plant combo! I need to fill it in with a few more plants, but it’s a good start. 1) Variegated Solomon’s Seal from #Monrovia : I’m a sucker for leaves that look hand painted. Zones 4-8, fast growing to 2 ft tall and wide, sweet little white bell flowers 2) Shadowland ‘Wheee!’ Hosta from #provenwinners : I’ve had this on my list of plants to buy for a couple of years. I love the twisty leaves! Zones 3-9, grows 11-18” tall, and just magical! 3) Tiarella ‘Pink Skyrocket’ from #terranovanurseries : Didn’t know I needed this until I saw it! Zones 4-9, grows 6” tall and 12” wide. Those pink flowers though! . . . #newbgardener #newgardener #beginninggardener #gardening #garden #gardener #forestgarden #woodlandgarden #shadegarden #solomonsseal #shadowlandwheee #hosta #tiarella #pinkskyrocket #partshade #shade #washingtongardener #washingtongarden #zone8 #pnwgardening #pacificnorthwestgarden #gardenbed #needmoreplants

Oleaster (Elaeagnus x submacrophylla syn. E. ebbingei), also known as Ebbing’s Silverberry, thought to be a cross between E. macrophylla and E. pungens, and closely related to Goumis and Autumn Olives. It produces delicious, juicy, silver-speckled berries, with a single, relatively large, but equally edible seed in each. It can also fix atmospheric nitrogen, enrichin the soil as it grows, making it a good candidate for the forest garden. #perennialvegetables #forestgarden #oleaster #silverberry #elaeagnus #elaeagnusebbingei #elaeagnussubmacrophylla

Skovhaven er endnu ung, men vi begynder så småt at kunne høste fra den 👩‍🌾🌳🌲 Igår prøvede vi Stolthenriks gåsefod - en flerårig grønsag, hvor både blade, blomster og frø kan spises. Jeg lavede en opbagt sovs på sojamælk og hakkede bladene i - det var mega lækkert! 😋 Bladene er milde og gode 👌 #permacultureplants

Red campion, Silene dioica, growing next to White campion, Silene latifolia, on our plot. Not edible due to the high levels of Saponins (perhaps you can make soap from it?). I think it’s not only attractive but important to let these wild plants grow in amongst our food plants - hopefully helping to provide a more complete biosystem.

#MothersDay is right around the corner and we're acknowledging the wonderful mothers in our program! Meet Cecilia from Ikinu, Kenya! Cecilia and her husband live on their shamba, or farm, while their children and grandchildren live in the city. On weekends and school breaks the grandkids come to the shamba to play, work in the Forest Garden, and to connect with their ancestral land. Working alongside Cecilia, the children learn about the various plants and trees in the Forest Garden. They help to harvest produce and prepare foods for mealtime. While in the city they get their groceries from the market, but here on the farm they learn about growing them from seed and picking them fresh for eating. These experiences have given them a deeper appreciation for their family. #bethechange #planttreeschangelives #ForestGarden #sustainable #green #gogreen #forest #trees #tree #zerohunger #fruit #hardwood #endpoverty #environment #MothersDay #MothersDayGifts

This Saturday we’ll be at Duke Farms in Hillsborough, NJ presenting: * Forest Gardening in the Home Landscape * How do we garden like the forest, where diverse plant and animal species interact in a state of natural symbiosis? * Grounded in permaculture principles, this integrated approach to gardening utilizes perennial polycultures, organized by physical architecture and ecological niche, to produce an abundance of food, flowers, plant medicine, and habitat. Join Lindsay Napolitano and Johann Rinkens of Fields Without Fences to explore the perennial polyculture world of forest gardens in the home landscape. So much more than a growing technique, forest gardens teach us about the potential of thoughtful reflection, understanding, and cooperation for creating powerful synergy in our lives and landscapes! * Saturday, May 11th, 2019 10 am - 12 pm Duke Farms 1112 Dukes Parkway West, NJ 08844 REGISTER @ dukefarms.org/classes #forestgarden #polycultures #perennial #biomimicry #permaculture #ediblelandscaping #habitat #plantmedicineforpeopleandplanet

Strawberries are on the horizon!! 🍓 We will be swimming in sweet, juicy strawberries in about a week 😄 Pineberries should be right behind them. #nopesticides #certifiednaturallygrown and #beyondorganic. . Blueberries are showing a little promise this year (swipe across) We'll see how they do. These are a native lowbush variety, more akin to Maine wild blueberries than the big berries you see at the grocery store. We do have a few of the larger varieties, as well, but they are not at maturity yet. . What's your favorite berry?

💚 I am creating fresh whole leaf aloe Vera bio hacked Turmeric Lemonade we love to use the outer leaves of The Aloe skin to nourish our skin and hair. Boy Ashoka gives a great smile as he has his natures Brill Cream. Looking Dapper diamond. Big Smiles. Aloe Vera Whole leaf is a true wonder food. Resilient very healing for me as a father. I know healing alkalinity and this food is a Queen of Gaia. So so much intelligence. There is zero thing as incurable. Welcome to the Aquarius Age. You are Light You are Living thus We fuel are foods with Living on Foods With Coherent Light. Google Kirlian Photography of Coconut oil which is Raw! Check the light. Look at the difference between Organic and Non Organic. Wild Aloe will be so so electrical just look at this. Loaded with Life Love and Electricity. Aloe Vera Is Rich in Natural Occurring MSM. MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) – Its ability to neutralize inflammation is one of the greatest, and one of the most inexpensive, discoveries in this field. MSM has been shown to break down the calcification that is frequently associated with chronic inflammation. In your arteries, it's called plaque, which leads to heart disease. These plaques are the root cause of inflammation. "MSM helps dissolve these calcified deposits, turning it into calcium sulfate and making it soluble so your body can excrete it," Avocado Wolfe "The dosage of MSM has to be, in the beginning, maybe 2,500 mg per day. But really, you need to get up to 5,000 mg or 7,500 mg, and allow it to work over a period of months. But don't ever want to start anything at a very high dosage. Move into it gently. I have a good friend of mine who is now taking 30,000 mg of MSM for his rheumatoid arthritis, and that is the dosage he needs in order to feel complete relief of his pain." Keep in mind that there may be side effects because MSM can detoxify you, and that may initially aggravate any condition you have. So increase dosage slowly to allow your body to adjust. It's also important to note that if you're allergic to sulfa drugs, you may also have trouble with MSM because it is a type of sulfur. #visionarylifehakz

Nature is amazing! While they might look like beans, these are actually the seeds of our live fence, which is known as balo here (gliricidia sepium). Not only can you cut a 6" branch, stick it in the ground and it grows, but within 2 years it flowers and starts producing seeds! If we humans would only observe and support nature more, we'd be in a much better place than we are. But we still have time if we commit and start making changes. Now. . ~~~ . ¡La naturaleza es asombrosa! Aunque se parezcan a habichuelas, estas son las semilas de nuestra cerca viva, que aquí se conoce como balo (gliricidia sepium). ¡No solamente puedes cortar una rama de 6", meterla en la tierra y crece, sino que dentro de 2 años produce flores y semillas! Si nosotros los seres humanos observáramos y apoyáramos más a la naturaleza, estaríamos en mucha mejor posición de lo que estamos. Pero todavía tenemos tiempo si nos comprometemos y empezamos a hacer cambios.

Taco dinner last night didn’t exactly cost much in dollars to put together & provided plenty of leftovers for breakfast. It was delicious to take a walk alone with my wife after a long day and pick salad, cook together, slow dance to jazz in the kitchen while dinner sizzled away, eat a really nice meal together outside, and follow it up with the ugly berries the forager is thinning out of the forest garden. We sure needed it! We had sold enough produce to supplement our meals with local grass fed beef, organic avocados & cassava flour... we have loads of produce coming in... our current customers are loaded up and we have more to sell. and the most important piece is we are both still standing and didn’t get buried under the stress or workload of sustaining a small farm and trying to make it work... at least not yesterday! 😂 Since that latter part is often touch & go... it was so worth celebrating, as every day we are breathing is IMO. We will see if we can hold on to that today! 🙏 But homestead truth: it took us almost seven years of owning our land to earn this moment we had last night. it took a ton of time & patience. It wasn’t simple or easy, we got our butts handed to us over and over again, we fought over things I never thought you could like free range chickens and deer fur in my washing machine. We learned. We grew. Things changed. We love what we do, even more than in the beginning really, but that’s evolved since the day we bought the land. A lot! So, we tried to slow down the last couple of years & in doing so realized it was time to make a name adjustment. Eight Owls Farm + Forage is us, and we are it. It will likely take us until winter to get all the pieces of our online puzzle totally updated, but by the grace of God, good health and good weather... we will. It’s no rush for us, especially since we have actual farming and foraging to do this season! But, we agreed last night it was time, to at least update the name... in the name of getting back to sharing what we have to share here. We have a lot of surplus to share and sell right now... If you are interested in getting food from the eight owls for your family too, shoot us a message! 🦉❤️

Bez & Nu both have been dealing with an incurable diagnosis for almost 16-18 years. We have been bullied & threatened for wanting only ever the best for our children. We know we live in a totalitarian society that if you think!! You may be targeted and singled out!! Our children have to inject a GMO insulin. Have done with Nuala since age 1.5 and Bez since age 8months. The challenges we still face are enormous. Everyone has challenges. Nu & Bez have excellent attitudes to life. They know this is not their destiny. Imagine being told you have an incurable diagnosis from age 1.5 or 8months. My most recent doctor I have clashed with and he is everything I do not resonate with modern health care. Thank God for @brucelipton and his wisdom Why are folks so confident on pharmaceutical back science? It’s a huge business and folks are totally blind. Society is very biased towards personal treatment choices. You cannot get essential oils or any kind of natural medicine on prescription. You cannot get Real food on prescription. The Food dietary guidelines are funded by junk food corporations. If we followed anything of what the doctors or medical profession tell us our children would lose their limbs, be on kidney dialysis, have renal failure, be blind and suffer celiac disease and other chronic autoimmune dis-ease. I My daughters name means “new day” we say as long as there is a new day there is much more than hope!! This is a photo of a throwback, of a special place in our hearts. The forests are our favourite place to be amongst the deer & the badger. As @michaelbbeckwith says “pain will push us until the vision pulls us” We are totally in vision. The journey continues. This post for me is about making decisions with the heart & not the mind. Would you become a pilgrim on the road of love? The first condition is that you make yourself humble as dust and ashes.” – Rumi #visionarylifehakz

These are some images from a small home orchard and vegetable production system we're working on in Hoekwil. Clayton ( @clayton_mccoy ) and Lisa have asked for an organised yet natural system that's diverse and resilient. @sebastian_basler drew up a basic schematic for the project. In spring we'll be planting citrus, stone and pome fruit, as well as mangos, avos, pawpaw and understory to support the fruit and a veggie garden as well. For now we're sheet mulching with wood chips from the site and well rotted horse manure over winter to beat the grass and prep the soils. The last pic is a rhino beetle that came in with the compost. Massive thanks to Sam, Luke, and Debbie for getting stuck in with this first phase, to @waldo_dewald for his design input and to Sebastian for the groovy design visual of our ideas. _______________________________________ #organicorchard #ecologicaldesign #forestgarden

This is Petrichor; an erstwhile abandoned, barren, compact, unproductive land - a result of endless monoculture paddy farming -that has now sprung back to life and how. : We didn't do much. We only perennialised the landscape by replanting native trees & vegetation, cover crops, cleaned the waterways and just sat back to let Nature do its thang! : We now have food to eat all year through. We're surrounded by guava, papaya, avocado, banana, moringa and jackfruit trees. Hibiscus, marigold, rosella are some of the beneficial flowers that make up our home apothecary garden. The birds, bees and insects are back. The hornbills have been visiting us every year. Our streams are cleaner and so is the air that we breathe. Our swimming pools are spring fed. Locals and people from all over the world visit us to share our space and enjoy this abundance, to reconnect with what really matters yet they are mindful of the long term health of this piece of land that is Petrichor. : In our journey of planet care, bouts of despair and hopelessness at times is not unfounded. Spurts of 'is this really working'!, the frustration of almost swimming upstream, despair because we feel like minorities up against an overwhelmingly apathetic world are feelings that appear time and again. : We're learning to not take ourselves too seriously. We're learning to let go. To do what has to be done without attachment to outcome. To go to work on the self and self transformation first and the rest falls into place. : Each day there are a million lessons to take away from a forest farm. Today it is this 👉🏼Practice and all is coming.🌸🌿🙏🏽 : Thank you Ankit @tylerdurden1987 for reminding us that although it seems like we're not getting anywhere at times, coming out of the picture does help.

A large number of plants in the garden like this 'Calycanthus occidentalis' are neither rare or exotic to the Pacific Northwest. I bought this plant while I was working at a local nursery nearly 20 years ago for its thick glossy foliage and unique brick red lotus-like flowers. My plant has tolerated both extremely dry sun and persistently saturated winter soils in part shade with no ill effects. #gardenplants #hardinesszone7b #ecologygarden #calycanthus #forestgarden garden #speciesgarden #naturegarden #landscaping #pnwgarden #homegarden #gardening #nativegarden
