  G'day  


          After   organics   the idea of   permaculture   came about,
and from that fusion has slowly come forward   agriculture as a mimic of nature;
or agriculture utalising the  ethnobotanicals   of a region.
          Instead of recreating the landscape for agriculture, looking at the landscape and saying that this micro-site of the bioregion could have supported these economic plants.     If I place them in this mix at this density I can obtain a viable crop that will support myself and the other animals of the local biosphere.
          The beauty of this approach is that it can exist alongside conventional agriculture providing regeneration of riparian zones and shelter belts.


          I wild-craft from my eco-zones and am planting fruit, nut and timber trees as well as trees with oil-bearing leaves.     My long term goal being self-sufficiency
in my raw flavouring materials for my Liqueurs, wild dried herbs, essential oils and craft timber.
