A win-win for people and the eco-system

One little plant of lemons. 3years old. Not pruned ever and never fertilized. Has one friend growing on the south side, shading it from the harsh sun…the pigeon pea. It provides the organic matter required and fixes nitrogen. Everything else is shared by and with other friends growing in the food forest that is ChGaitraban. The pea invites sun birds and the lemons invite the bees. Snakes live in the rock bund bordering this little guild which also has marigold…
This harvest is from one lemon plant and one pigeon pea. It seemed criminal to steal marigold from the jungle so left them there to self-seed for the next season…What a win-win situation!
