How it all started

In early 2017, Abdul Razak and his family decided to fulfill their late parent’s wish to have a flourishing land that could provide food for the family. He shares, “In some way, it is as if nature is gently nudging us to revive the soul of this land.”

Establishing the forest ecosystem

Inspired by Geoff Lawton,a British-born Australian permaculture consultant and designer, Razak and the family planted their first pioneer trees. These hardy trees with long roots (also known as the support species)were the backbone of their experimental food forest.
