Whole Way Home, a healthy long-term sober living home-stay in a Downtown 1954 Vintage Vegas house, where they have been establishing a Permaculture oriented Food Forest. The yard started simply, with planting three pistachio trees in the front yard (two girls and a boy) and a few edible cacti (aloes and agave). Then as the master plan for the yard grew, so did our collection of trees and plants. Since embarking on improving the original WholeWay Home property, we have endeavored to grow as many medicinal and edible plants as possible on our site. We try to maximize the ‘food forest’ potential by espalier techniques, pruning, companion planting, multiple trees in one hole, and Veganic gardening. The collection was initially inspired by the edible bio-dynamic principles and plants of the biblical Essenes in the Middle East, knowing that these food producing plants did well in another desert area of the world (figs, olives, jujubes, pistachios, dates, pomegranates, and grapes). The plant collection grew to include any edible plant that could weather it through our intense climate zone. These included edible natives as well as exotics such as several varieties of Goji Berries (or Wolf Berries), Ginseng and He Sho Wu, among others.
Now that our foundation trees are firmly established and starting to produce, we have been working towards a Permaculture approach with the remainder of the companion plantings, mixed with traditional Mid Century Modern (MCM) Landscape design inspired by the legendary Garret Eckbo. This means, that we intend to have layers and interactions of permie principles with a pleasing MCM architectural DESIGNED approach to the garden – creating living space nooks and crannies and outdoor ‘rooms.’ The focus is on useful livability that just so happens to also include food producing plant life. This concept is being executed on two normal standard sized older city properties measuring 110′ deep by 64” wide (Each estimated lot size is 0.17 acre). Our current foundation (tree and larger specimens) plant inventory stands at over seventy (70) plants in various states of growth and production on a total of roughly one third of an acre.
Lastly, we started the Little Free Downtown Health Library (Charter #33110) in 2015. Donations of books on positive living are always appreciated.
