Edible & Medicinal Plants in the Restored Landscape
Creating Sustainable Habitat Niches for Wildlife Health
The practice of landscape restoration necessarily includes the re-establishment of habitat. We at Land Stewardship Design strive to identify what essential plants are missing from the landscape by analyzing what the micro and macro climate conditions of a particular site are and matching these to a well considered picture of a complete, plant community for that site.
Many critical plant foods and medicines are now missing, or scarce in the landscape. This is due to over harvesting practices and other human disruptions. Reintroducing the edible and medicinal plants is another important step in redressing past mistakes and a viable way of creating sustainable habitat niches for wildlife health, as well as our own.
