Abundant landscapes for people and nature

Practical implementation of owner’s plans for soil development and food production on a challenging site based on inland coastal sands.  Key recommendations to enhance the existing system: simple measures to capture and make more efficient use of rainwater (e.g. brush berms, rough mulches, contoured landscaping), production of high quality fungal and bacterial composts for food forest and vegetable production, compost teas, increased presence of nitrogen fixing trees and windbreak species, and avoidance of pollution from recycled construction materials.
