FOOD FOREST

At Booyong we are learning about permaculture and turning the Orchard into a Food Forest. We are also beginning to explore the concept of companion planting which is exciting and worthy of interest. We are very excited about the principles and ethics and will keep you abreast to our learning and changes as they occur.
