KAIAPOI FOOD FOREST VISION
A food forest and nature does not grow large areas of one plant species. Nature prefers biodiversity, not monocultures! Mixing different types of plant together makes them grow better. It creates a natural synergy that benefits all the plants involved. The plants as a result are more resistant to pests and disease, and are more productive.
The Trust have developed the following ethos to ensure the food forest is enduring – connect, nourish, educate, and inspire. An enduring food forest will be a valuable legacy for the entire Kaiapoi community.
