@mrsmhere These forests also broadly support more species than most natural forests (at least in the Netherlands) due to their abundance in different plant species and the complexity it generates compared to natural forests which due to manmade maintenance have vastly degraded. Hope this explains it a bit 🙂
@mrsmhere Glad you asked! Foodforests are manmade forests that mimic the different workings of a natural forests. Only instead of most of the trees and plants found in natural forests you replace them with edible plants and trees (e.g. fruit, nuts, herbs). This way it becomes its own little ecosystem which supports humans as well as a lot of native species (insects, animals, pollinators).
Let’s do all we can to care for our pollinators. They feed our garden birds and and are essential for a healthy natural #environment 💔

Such a very precious world we live in. Please let’s look after it. 😊💚🌍
The #bluebells in my local woodland are probably at their best right now, especially with the tree canopy coming into leaf. Such a very beautiful place to walk in. I always look forward to this time of year. 😊💚
We are going to have to think this through in a hurry but our infrastructure can’t cope with extreme weather events

And then, get really pissed off because this is our family they are murdering.
Happy Friday. I hope everyone has some good plans for getting out into the countryside or the garden this weekend? I hope to enjoy the beautiful wildflowers which are starting to appear, especially #bluebells. Here are some more I photographed last weekend. 😊💚
@JohanEmpa Hi is it ok for me to use mastodon.green as my instance? I am in the UK and therefore a European, but your terms of service say this server is for people in the EU and EEA only? Do you want me to leave? Thanks for clarifying.
New to Mastodon. Gardener, photographer, European. I care about sustainability and working with nature, not against it. 🐝🦋
