Philippine Food Forest
Like many other people, I'm also trying to get my head around the unfolding climate catastrophe. It's on my mind a lot and I want to do something about it. But what? It's such a massive issue, and I'm so entangled in family and working life already that it's hard to really turn things around on a personal level. But there are many people who are doing something about it. With PFF, I want to highlight the efforts of people who are planting trees / practicing permaculture / building soil and things like that here in the Philippines.
There are a lot of different methods and movements around and I decided that most would probably fit under the canopy of a food forest. It seems to me that growing trees and food together through non-destructive, regenerative practices is a crucial way forward. Food forests make us more resilient by providing sustenance and security for the many lifeforms inhabiting and surrounding them.
What's the plan?
The site is centered around a map, where people can find examples of food forests and connect with the people that grow them. In the future, I hope to expand the map with useful data like nearby nurseries, seed banks, funding opportunities, tree planting projects and things like that.
"So it's like a dating site for trees?" A friend once said.. Well yes, maybe!
My personal goal is to shape healthy, long lasting relationships between humans and forests. To reconnect with our ancient selves again, rooted in communities and the natural world. To regain a sense of belonging.
