Call me Farmer Berrios. The idea of one day owning a farm has been a dream of mine. I’ve had a small garden in the back yard of my apartment for like the last 5 years. Since we bought the house last March, we grew some tomatoes and veggies with some success. This season I’d like to expand into a mini-farm operation.
YouTube has been my online education resource from hobby farming to chicken coops. There’s so many Youtubers with great channels that I’m inspired to get my own Food Forest started. I’ve decided to go with a permaculture process like Paul Gautschi’s “Back To Eden” technique.
My back yard has been cleared out thanks to my dogs tearing and digging it all up. Thanks Odin and Dutchess, good dogs.
I ordered free wood chips from Chip Drop to lay all over the yard but just as I was distributing the wood chips, it started to snow. This is how it looks so far…
I’ve even drafted a plan drawing of the layout of my raised beds, chicken coop and dog pen. Just gotta lay out where my potential fruit trees are going. That’s how serious I am.
There’s a huge tree smack dab in the middle of the yard that I have to trim to allow more sun onto the Food Forest
I’d like to consider myself a handy, hands-on kinda guy. But tackling this beast may be way over my head. Literally.
My objective is to build the infrastructure DIY and with as much organic material as possible. I do plan to recycle and reuse whatever I can find to make the Food Forest as raw and natural as I can; but at the same time be fully functional.
This project is more than a dream for me. It’s about being self sustainable
Living off the grid.
Well sort of
I’m excited about this next venture and I’ll do the best I can to document the whole process
