Willow Creek Permaculture
Modern Homesteading and Holistic Parenting in Southwestern Ontario.
Willow Creek Farm Stats
Willow Creek Farm is located near Dutton, Ontario. The Read family has lived at this diverse property since August 2016.
The arable land is gradually being moved from annual cash crops to a base of permanent pasture and switchgrass. The fields will also be planted with rows of nut trees, fruit trees and various edible and medicinal shrubs below them using techniques from forest gardening and restoration agriculture. The creek valley and wooded areas are being left as wild as possible. The edges of arable land meeting forest will be planted with a native species food forest that will be more lightly harvested by humans, leaving plenty for the ‘wild ones.’
