What do we mean by "Permaculture and Florida Wilds?"
Sounded like a cool tagline, right? Anyway, Permaculture is the proper name for Food Forest, but Food Forest is easier to picture. Florida Wilds is our way of saying Florida Naturals or plants that have been established as Florida Natural plant life.
What is Permaculture (aka "Food Forest?")
I’m not going to give you a history lesson on who developed this concept, that is up to the individual who wants to research this. Basically, Permaculture is the "marrying" of the usual agriculture that provides ongoing food crops with the idea of a self-sustaining "permanent" growing system (such as a forest) that needs little to no maintenance to thrive. It is a system of Permanent Agriculture aka Permaculture.
Incorporating Florida Native Plants (the "wilds.")
Purchase plants that thrive on neglect in this area of Florida. The plants that grow wild in Florida are not always what you expect. They are not all sparse and skinny. Some are ones that are very colorful and plants that you probably thought were only house plants. Grow them out in your yard to bring in good insects that will protect & pollinate your food plants.
How this is the REAL "Green Deal" and how it heals the planet.
When you establish a Food Forest and incorporate the Florida Wilds, you start healing the Earth by cooling down the planet and letting life evolve the way it was meant to. When you have a functional system, it will take care of itself with very little input from you. It will evolve and flourish while providing vital nutrients your body is in need of. It will reward you with healthy food and medicinal plant life.
