♻️ Florida Food Forest: Turning Tree Waste into Local Food ♻️

At OnSite, we've discovered a fantastic way to create thriving food forests while offering a necessary residential service and being kind to the environment. Here's how it works, nice and simple:

1. Procuring Trees:

2. Composting:

  • Next, we turn that tree waste into nutrient-rich compost. By combining mulch with ash and kitchen scraps and letting the natural biology unfold, we make "black gold" that makes plants happy. Compost is a natural fertilizer, and it's great for the soil.

3. Planting Edibles:

  • With our fantastic compost ready, we plant delicious edibles like mangos, avocados, mulberries, various herbs, and MORE. The climate here in Florida is ideal for growing food. Plants thrive with the nutrient-rich soil, and they start growing big and strong.

4. Growing Food:

  • As time passes, these edibles grow into healthy, tasty food. Imagine picking fresh fruits and veggies right from your own backyard! It's not only super healthy and convenient but also reduces the need for store-bought produce.

5. Repeating:

  • Here's the cool part: the new plants naturally produce more tree waste in the form of leaves, branches, and even fruit peels. We collect this waste and turn it back into compost. It's a never-ending cycle of tree waste becoming food and then returning to the earth as compost to grow more food.

And that, my friends, is how we turn tree waste into Florida Food Forests. It's good for the environment, it's good for your body (and taste buds), and it's a win all around!
