1 Urban Gardening For Nutritional Resilience

2 This Power Point is a Gift– enjoy!! Kia Ora, We only taught this workshop in Tauranga on our workshop tour because that was the only place people booked to see it in large enough numbers. We believe urban gardening for nutritional resilience is one of the most exciting fields to be involved in at this time and our research model of an urban garden is humming and very exciting. We want you to know about it and get excited too!!!!. You can see monthly blogs on our website and regular facebook posts on the Koanga facebook page. We teach Urban Gardening and Nutritional Resilience workshops and we have a wonderful booklet called the 200 sq m Urban Garden!!!monthly blogs pageworkshops 200 sq m Urban Garden

4 Brief Urban, low income, family of 4 Unable to source high-quality food and unable to afford it Resourceful, willing to learn, lots of time Budget of $2,000 Mediterranean climate, rainfall 1600mm, Free-draining sandy loam soils Want a design to grow as much as possible of their nutritional needs as they can, based on principles Weston Price discovered, that super-healthy indigenous peoples followed

5 Weston A. Price The diets of all healthy traditional people ’ s he studied included No refined or denatured foods No vegetarian diets 4 times the calcium and 10 times the fat-soluble vitamins that western people had in the 1920’s Provision for the health of future generations by providing special nutrient rich food for parents to be The Weston Price Foundation has added the following to help us understand what Weston Price found and what we need to do to achieve high health according to his findings Some sort of animal protein and fat Some animal products eaten raw daily High food enzyme content Seeds grains nuts were soaked sprouted, fermented, or naturally leavened Total fat content varied from 30-80% of calories eaten; only 4% of that from polyunsaturated sources Equal amounts omega-3 and omega-6

6 Calcium1,500mg Vitamin A Vitamin D 12,000 IU 4,000 IU Levels of vitamins and minerals recommended by the Weston A. Price Foundation, per day Fats 30-80% of total calorie intake!!! Only 4% of that not saturated animal fat!!!!

7 Calcium 1500mg daily requirement 1 cup of raw milk contains160 mg 1 cup kefir/yogurt160 mg 45 gms cheese 450 mg 2 Tbsp butter 100 mg Well-made broth 1 cup100 mg Casseroles, stews, soups made with broth 1 cup around 100 mg 100 gms high brix deep green vege 100 mg 1/4 cup nuts if soaked 100 mg 8x sardines and small fish cooked in bones, shell fish 40 mg Avocado 100 gms Eggs x 2 Herbs and spices 12 mg 50mg significant

8 Do we go the dairy option or the bone option?

9 Calcium 1500mg daily requirement: note Vitamin D and magnesium required to absorb calcium Well-made broth 2 cups200 mg Casseroles, stews, soups made with broth 1 cup around 100 mg 2x100 gms high brix dark green vege 200 mg 1/4 cup nuts if soaked 2 eggs 100 mg 50mg

10 Daily Vitamin A Recommended WAPF Daily intake 12,000 IU Daily Vit A Liver 30 gms once a week(or 2,500 daily, because vitamin A is stored) from 1.5 rabbit livers, shared amongst 4 people weekly Broth (2cup/600g daily x 7) from rabbit and chicken carcasses, including offal and heads and chicken feet and all fat 4,000 Eggs (2 egg yolks daily) 50gms x Olive oil 100 gms, daily x 7220 Daily Total7,700

11 Key elements of our design are 1. Focus on traditional “sacred foods” a. Vitamins especially Vitamin A: rabbit/chicken livers, broth, heads, all organ meats, and chicken eggs…

12 b. Calcium, bone broth, eggs, high brix fruits and vege, and nuts and oils

13

14

15 c. Traditional fats and oils, eggs, olives, nuts, honey, chicken and rabbit

16 2. High-Brix vege, fruit, nuts, and oils

17 a. Choosing heritage vegetable, nut and fruit cultivars, and then within the heritage range those that are known to contain high levels of phytonutrients

18 b.Environment – Remineralising the soil

19 m Salads, Stir Fries, Soups and Stews Garden Biointensive, maximum efficiency/production, growing soil Heritage seed Specific vege for nutrient density and square-meter production Grow to high brix Design for daily harvesting Food worth $2500 for a family of 4, on a daily basis, year round

20

22 4. Design for year round ripening times for all food sources

23

24 5. Top Bar Beehive

25 6. Use of vertical spaces

26 Enables use of concrete areas for maximum production, least water 7. Wicking beds

27 Enables use of concrete areas for maximum production, least water 7. Wicking beds

28 8. Box gardens High production from specific crops in problematic areas Water chestnuts, watercress, kang kong, kumara, potatoes, etc.

29 9. Solar Drier Maximum use of what is available for harvesting from site and wider foraging area, herbs, seaweed, fruit, soaking and drying nuts, tomatoes etc.

30 10. Passive-solar cloche To enable use of own seeds essential for completion of process of co-evolution, and using heritage seed with seedlings ready at best time

31 Best use of tree branches etc., left after rabbits have eaten leaves and bark, bringing nutrients into system from wider area Biochar goes into compost system under chickens, to be charged and ready to grow high brix vege 11. Biochar maker

32 We’ll use the following strategies/techniques to achieve production of animals, fruits, vege, etc., in a regenerative way

33 1. Systems to provide for our own rabbit and chicken feed Worm farm under rabbit hutches

34 Soldier Fly larvae farm for chickens

35 Compost heap under chickens

36 Nutrient-dense mineral accumulators grown in every space available, e.g. comfry, alfalfa, chicory, sorrel, clover, yarrow, tagasaste Forage from wider area Guerilla plantings Apple tree prunings Seaweed from beach

37 2. Remineralisation of our patch! Recycle all bones and shells, via ash/biochar Recycle all brown cardboard and non-toxic paper available Collect leaves in autumn Collect rabbits’ tree food from wider area, bringing in nutrients Composting toilet Fish Forest garden layers

38 3. Good genetics Animals Vege Fruit/nuts
