A Garden in pursuit of Abundance

Our definition of abundance is a mindset in which one can be happy and satisfied and no external event or situation can alter that state of mind. 

One of the main issues in finding your state of abundance comes from western basic needs as Food and Health. We mostly translate those basic needs to money, which in turn can be earned through having a day job.

But what if we can exclude money from your basic food needs and minimise the health pressure by providing a healthy environment whilst cooperating with nature and therefore creating a durable and sustainable way for humans to exist with a surplus for mankind as well as nature?

We will try to do that on a local and micro level with a experimental Garden in which we try to pursue Abundance (with a capital A). 

The garden experiment started in August 2016 and will follow and implement a few strategies:

- Permaculture
- Food forestry
- Paddock Paradise

Be part of the change and pursue abundance and register yourself as a new FoodForest Ranger at Carpe Vitam, het knabbelbos
