Beyond Companion Planting: Building’ a Forest Garden

  1. 1. Beyond Companion Planting: Building’ a Forest GardenIn one of our recent articles I wrote about companion planting and the specific plants myhusband and I have grown successfully together -or not- when growing our seasonal foodcrops. This time I’d like to write about the function and use of plants grown in polycultureand how each plant species has inherent characteristics that benefit an entire plantcommunity or plant guild (polyculture is growing many different types of plants together -ascompared to monoculture).SYNERGYSimilar to companion planting when you design a plant guild or forest garden you aregrouping together plants which relate synergistically –benefiting each other by warding offpests or by supporting each other in some specific way. YET within a plant guild or forestgarden we are trying to do more than compliment the plants individual relationships we aretrying to compliment the arrangement as a whole ecosystem –soil biota to uniquemicroclimate, insects to animals, plants to people. Creating plant specific polycultureswhich provide food for humans as a priority and either preserve or create an ecosystem is astep beyond companion planting and toward a more diverse and secure future -for food andnatural resources.A forest garden can be many things… in our trials and experimentation it is comprised ofseveral plant guilds grown in a spatial pattern that becomes self sustaining over time. A
  2. 2. plant guild is simply a polyculture of plants -generally with a central plant species- whengrown together make efficient use of space and resources requiring little input fromhumans.GOALSThe ultimate goal for a forest garden should be clear from the onset of design. For example:when we designed our forest garden we wanted to grow fruit and nut trees, lots of differenttypes of berries, edible flowers and fresh greens all year. We also wanted the forest gardento achieve a balance in pest populations, be able to withstand drought, control pervasiveweeds as well as build soil health. Once the goals are set the spatial pattern of the gardencan be determined.PATTERNSIdentifying patterns found in nature, such as a spiral on snails and the curves in a naturalswale or river allow us to mimic them within our gardens. Pathways which bend and curveare not only more eye pleasing than straight lines but are also more efficient in their use ofspace. Creating nooks for trees and other plants along side a meandering path are perfectareas for placing plant guilds. Easily accessible pathways combined with several nooks ofdiverse plant guilds becomes your forest garden.RESOURCE EFFICIENTIn consideration of water resources you can take this meandering pathway utilizing nooksconcept one step further: if you build slightly elevated pathways some nooks along the waycould be turned into depressions within the terrain and serve as mulch basins for arainwater harvesting system. Mulch basins (some planted with water tolerant species)would conserve water in the soil for nearby plants to utilize all year reducing the need forirrigation over time. Designing a forest garden infrastructure like this when patterning,especially in an arid climate, is truly an effective use of water and other resources. One canbegin to see just how forest gardening goes beyond companion planting by incorporatingresource efficiency into the landscape.STRUCTUREBefore going into the function and use of plants within a forest garden let me define thebasic architecture or vertical structure of a forest garden –as conceptualized by Robert Hartand many other originators of this perennial gardening idea.A forest garden has a vertical structure comprised of several layers of plants; ideally eachlayer provides a benefit to its neighboring layers (see my simple drawing for visual aid): 1. Canopy plants (which can be fruit or nut trees, tall nurse or pioneer species or simply currents or berry shrubs) 2. Subcanopy plants (lower plants utilizing some shade of the canopy plants) 3. Shrub plants (wide often habitat forming plants provide shelter and shade in sunny aspects) 4. Herbaceous plants (often edible and medicinal plants grown on either sun or shade side of trees)
  3. 3. 5. Vining or climbing plants (plants that climb their way up subcanopy and canopy plants) 6. Groundcover plants (shade the soil conserving moisture and prevent soil loss) 7. Deeply rooted plants (become nutrient pumps for the surrounding soil enhancing it’s fertility)PLANT SPECIFICSForest garden structural layers (the canopy, subcanopy etc.) made up of diverse plantsgrown in polyculture all have specific characteristics which function for the forest garden asa whole. Understanding what particular habits plants have, how plants can be used andhow they function inherently is one of the most important considerations when designing aplant guild or forest garden.Listed below are plants with inherent characteristics -beneficial uses and functions- to beginto understand when designing plant guilds and forest gardens. Keep in mind this list is notexhaustive!  The central plant species (all plants around this plant are chosen to support it’s overall growth and health –usually an edible plant)  Edible and medicinal plants (roots, shoots, leaves, fruit, seed etc.)  Companion plants (plants that have an overall benefit to one another)  Insectary and nectary plants (insects depend on these plants for food, shelter, reproduction etc.)
  4. 4.  Aromatic Pest Confusers (plants that confuse pest insects with strong odors e.g. onions, garlic)  Wildlife plants (birds and other animals rely on food and habitat these plants provide)  Nitrogen fixing plants (association between N fixing bacteria and plant roots creates free N)  Dynamic accumulator plants (mineral miners collect nutrients = free nutrients)  Bulbs and large rooted plants (soil structure diversity, ability to absorb/mine minerals)  Coppice, espalier, hedge or thicket plants (diverse ways of growing plants)  Ground cover plants (protects the soil, conserve water and create healthy soil level habitat)  Fertility and mulch plants (free nutrients and green mulch for seasonal chop and drop practices)  Animal forage and fodder plants (reduce outsourcing of food for livestock such as chickens)MULTIPLE USEMost plant species will have more than one of the characteristics listed above. Using ourpermaculture principles try to remember to stack as many elements and functions as youcan. For example, when choosing a plant guild’s central species one could pick a Pear anduse it as a canopy or subcanopy tree. Pear trees have at least 7 essential uses and functions: 1. an edible fruit to humans 2. a companion to chives, carrots, bulbs, borage, strawberries, nasturtiums, comfrey and more -in our experience 3. provides wildlife shelter for birds as a place to rest or nest in the branches 4. a nectary plant for honey bees while in bloom 5. can be grown in diverse ways like espaliered on fences or walls, in thickets or as a standard tree 6. can be coppiced for wood material
  5. 5. provides some (hopefully not much!) fallen fruit/insects for animals/chickens to feed on Pear Tree GuildGUILD BUILDCreating a site specific species matrix chart is the best way to pick out the right plants or‘guild build’ your forest garden. Edible Forest Gardens Volume Two: Design & Practice hasa comprehensive species matrix chart in the appendix for the East Coast but it is limited formy needs on the West Coast so I’ve created several charts over the years for myself andClients. These on-going reference charts are easy to follow and describe as muchinformation as one can find about a specific plant, its habits, uses and functions overall. Andthey are dynamic charts, ever growing and evolving themselves. I wrote a long time agoabout the Pear Tree Guild pictured above but always wanted to go into more detail.Take a peek at the charts I created for the same Pear Tree Guild (below). I’ve divided themup into sections for easier viewing in this article. The first chart references the plants genus,species and common names. Next is the family name –diversity of plant families isimportant to guild diversity. Next in this chart is the basic information on the plants light,water and soil tolerances. Note for the Pear Guild they all have just about the sametolerance levels. The light differs because of sun aspect -sun and shade sides of the tree.Those with mixed sun/shade are best suited for the shade side of the tree.
  6. 6. Next in the chart (pictured below) is the form of the plant. Is it a small herb or tall shrub?We note the habit -mat forming as in mints- and the root habit -if known- is alsoimportant. The maximum height and width of the plant is extremely important whenconsidering space. Where it is native to, the preferred habitat and successional stage of theplant are also things we like to note about the plants when guild building.
  7. 7. Following that chart is where it gets really interesting. Is the plant edible or medicinal? Is ita nitrogen fixer or a dynamic accumulator? Does it attract or support wildlife? Can itfunction as invertebrate shelter –meaning can it shelter insects we find to be beneficial tothe plant community and us? And finally is it a nectary plant -a plant that feeds bees andother nectar loving creatures- and if so when does it flower?
  8. 8. Last the chart questions if the plant is a ground cover -a living mulch to retain moisture.What other kinds of functions or uses the plant may have -does it coppice well? Can itspread –and if so is it dispersive or expansive? Dispersive means it spreads by seed andexpansive is generally by runners. The mint is expansive as we use it to control Bermudagrass which it successfully out-competes. Also this chart asks if the plant is poisonous tohumans or livestock. And finally any other notes of information we have gathered that is notyet listed. Here is where we will discern whether a plant is an aromatic pest confuser orAPC, as all Alliums are. APC plants confuse pests with their strong smells.
  9. 9. While it may seem like quite a task to generate charts such as these it is truly fun to do andwill help you understand the many different characteristics plants have and how they willbenefit you and your gardens now and in the long term.
  10. 10. By and large we have found ‘guild building’ our forest gardens a type of perennial gardeningsystem that is truly beneficial to all involved -as well as low maintenance if following theconcepts given above. There are many people involved with forest gardening around theworld and it is worth trying out new plants together to see what can be achieved in yourgarden.

Happy Guild Building!References:Forest Gardening: Cultivating an Edible Landscape Robert A de J. Hart Originalpublication 1991 Green Books, Ltd. ISBN: 0930031849 Forest Gardens Volume 1 and 2 Ecological Design and Practice forTemperate-Climate Permaculture by David Jacke and Eric Toensmeier 2005 ChelseaGreen Publishing Company ISBN: 1-931498-80-6 Planting INCREASES Food Production by 250 PercentOne of the goals of research in South Africa is to look at ways to boost food production with thepractice of intercropping (companion planting, or growing crops together) a cereal grain crop, likesorghum, with bean crops. We have been intercropping sorghum with legumes planted in row of zaipits.Why grow beans? Being legumes, bean crops can improve soils by converting nitrogen from the airinto forms that crops can use. The crops we are working with are quite tolerant of dry conditions andproduce vines that cover the ground, protect6ing it from the intense tropical sun and creating anenvironments in which soil microorganisms, can thrive. Moreover, the legumes provide the farmerwith a harvest of dried, edible beans.What are zai holes? The zai system originated in West Africa as a way to cope with drought and hardencrusted soil. Drought tolerant grain crops such as sorghum or millet are planted in pits about 12inches, 6 inches deep. With the excavated soil thrown to the downhill side, the pits act as tiny watercatchment basins, making maximum use of what little rainfall is received. Several handfuls ofmanure are traditionally placed in each pit, concentrating nutrients near the crop roots.
  11. 11. Have we seen any benefits? The results we have so far are from year one of a sorghum-legumesintercropping strategy within the zai system. Most of the legumes we have tried have grown verywell, but cowpea produced the most dried beans.It increase total grain production from 400 kilograms per hectare when grown sorghum alone toabout 1400 kilograms per hectare when grown together with cowpeas.It also increased soil nitrogen as well as nitrogen taken up by the sorghum plants.All of this is very encouraging from the perspective of the smallholder farmer, because it means theyhave a way to improve their soils while greatly increasing food production.NATURAL SOLUTIONS in Africa by Using Companion PlantingAcross East Africa, thousands of farmers are planting weeds in their maize fields (CompanionPlanting). Bizarre as it sounds, their technique is actually raising yields by giving the insect pestssomething else to chew on besides maize.It is better than pesticides and a lot cheaper, said Ziadin Khan, whose idea it is.And it has raised farm yields by 60-70 Percents.In East Africa, maize fields face two major pests, and Khan has a solution to both. The first is aninsect called the stem borer. True to its name, it s larvae eat their way through a third of the regionsmaize most years.But Khan discovered that the borer in even fonder of a local weed, napier grass. By planting napiergrass in their fields , farmers can lure the stem borers away from the maize and into a honey trap. Forthe grass produces a sticky substance that traps and kills stem borer larvae.The second major pest is Striga, a parasitic plant that wrecks 10 billion dollars worth damage onmaize crops every year, threating the livelihoods of one hundred million Africans.Weeding Striga is one of the most time consuming activities for millions of African women farmers,says Khan.But he has an antidote: another weed, called Desmodium. It seems to release some sort of chemicalthat Striga does not like. At any rate, where farmers plant Desmodium between rows of maize, Strigawill not grow.Khans cheap fixes for Striga and stem borer are spreading like wildfire through the fields of EastAfrica.
  12. 12. Trials on more than 2,000 farms are finished. It is out of our hands now, says Khans boss HansHerren , who is the director of the International Centre for Insect Physiology and Ecology in Nairobi.The ideas are being taken up by framers in countries such as Ethiopia where we have never worked.Khans novel way of fighting pests is one of the host of Low-Tech Innovations boostingproduction by 100 percent or more on millions of poor Thirds World farms in the pastdecade.This Sustainable Agriculture just happens to be the biggest movement in Third World Farmingtoday, dwarfing the tentative forays in genetic manipulation.It seems peasant farmers have a long way to go before they exhaust the possibilities of traditionalagricultureORGANIC GARDENING TECHNOLOGIESINCREASING Plant Yields by over 400 PERCENT your Soil ~ Healthy Soil, Healthy Plants, Healthy Peoplehttp://remineralize.orgSoil Regeneration with Volcanic Rock Dust Rock Dust added to soil can double plant or lawn growth.
