This is the fifth and largest (so far) design done with Food Forest Abundance for a family living in Zone 8 that wanted to use their space for education as well as supporting their home. They wanted to focus mostly on syntropic rows outside of their house’s yard.
This was the first time I had heard of syntropic gardening; but, after doing some research, I truly believe this method of farming and growing things is absolutely worth while, and extremely abundant because of both the early and often trimming mixed with layering organic matter directly on the soil around the plants.
For the PDF, you might have to zoom into about 200% to read the plant labels. Feel free to download the design. This design was much larger and required 2 parts for the overview. There is also an accompanying 52 page e-book for your learning.
Below is the Excel or Sheets version of the Plant List with loads of information about each plant, and the Design Narrative that talks more about each component. Download and use as you wish.
The syntropic plant overview has a layout and placement guide for a few rows of plants. The idea is that you follow the pattern of categories of plant types for a spot, then select a plant from that category to go in your design.
What did you take from this design? Do you already know about syntropic farming? If so, do you have any spaces already implemented? I would love to see more examples of this!
