Jane Walk Success
Over 40 people attended the Jane Walk and participated in building two fedges/food hedges. Fedges are a great way to create a fence hedge from edible plants. In our case we are using a variety of berry bushes placed close together to create the fedge.
Here you can see the layout of the lasagna garden bed utilizing perrmaculture practices to the left and the completed fedge below. This site is shared between a long term care facility and a church in our neighbourhood that now steward the fedge as well as two fruit trees. This is the first site to participate in a project called EDIBLE FOREST HEIGHTS, thee idea is to create community and edible landscapes in underutilized green spaces.
We had set out to build another fedge on the Jane Walk event of 25′. We asked volunteers to bring berry bush canes from home or any edible plants they could donate to the food forest. We had such an amazing response of gift giving, the 25′ fedge became a 50′ fedge!
Again you can see a great example of layering the materials to create the lasagna garden.
NO DIGGING, LESS WEEDING, LESS WATERING! FUN, FUN, FUN!
