RESTAURANT CULINARY GARDEN
The difference between food forests and traditional culinary gardens is that the former are relatively low maintenance and require little day to day inputs like irrigation, pest control, or weeding, and can be a hands-off food-producing option for busy restaurants.
This photo is a small culinary garden at the Demuth Community Center in Palm Springs, CA, that we based on the three sisters principle combining corn, beans, and squash in a permaculture guild. The corn acts as the garden stake, anchoring the vining squash, which is the shade/mulch plant, and the beans, which fix nitrogen into the soil and fertilize their sister plants, grow over all of them. Our sustainability consultants are ready to help your restaurant or small food business design and implement your food forest or culinary garden today.
